People would have loved to have had contact with foreign missionaries in 1902. But it was real difficult to come back once you got there. Now you can go to a mission (trip) in Honduras and get back by the end of the month.
Beneath the surface of states and nations, ideas and language, lies the fate of individual human beings in need. Answering their needs will be the mission of the United Nations in the century to come.

The Creator of this World and the World after this one has imposed on Himself the obligation to be kind and forgiving.
