Here we have found faith, loyalty, and devotion unsurpassed in the annals of Church history. Only through a testimony that God lives and has revealed himself from heaven and established his Church can men and women stand...with hope and courage...[and] continue with spirits sweet and hearts free from bitterness. — Ezra Taft Benson, Farewell Address upon completion his ministry in Europe, January - December 1946 (see A Labor of Love: The 1946 European Mission of Ezra Taft Benson (Deseret Book, 1989)An example of such devotion was Evelyne Kleinert, praised by her contemporaries as one who "spent herself immeasurably to relieve and comfort Saints and friends" and "a soul undaunted by misfortune, strengthened by having been able to overcome temptation and the obstacles of life...a source of power and faith for all those who know her."
