“Whether you have pioneer ancestry or came into the Church only yesterday, you’re a part of this grand picture of which those men & women dreamed. Theirs was a tremendous undertaking… They laid the foundation. Ours is the duty to build on it.” #pioneerdayhttps://t.co/D4ldgOUaT7 pic.twitter.com/YrBhdFduyS
