Mormons in West Africa

Elder Jeffrey R. Holland talks of the faithful Saints [“Saints” simply means members of the Church in Mormon vernacular].

Following is a quote Elder Holland paraphrases from President Ezra Taft Benson, former president of the Church.

The Lord works from the inside out. The world works from the outside in. The world would take people out of the slums. Christ takes the slums out of people, and then they take themselves out of the slums. The world would mold men by changing their environment. Christ changes men, who then change their environment. The world would shape human behavior, but Christ can change human nature.
