Dear Elders and Sisters,
You are free to watch and enjoy fireworks with members or investigators within your area to celebrate the fourth. I am not authorizing any contact with fireworks of any kind. Please do not light or hold or in any way administer fireworks. Please remember who you are and what you represent while you are enjoying this holiday. Also, remember to follow the guidelines in the missionary manual for when you need to be in your apartments and in every other way.
Thanks, and have a fun night.
THE VISION OF THE SOUTH
"Make no small plans: This is the vision I have for the South. I believe that one day the South will baptize more people into the church than all other English speaking missions in the world together....We will see the time when we will baptize hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands...In your day you will see a million members of the church in the South. There will be temples plural in the Southern States. What a great call you have to serve with these marvelous people." President Spencer W. Kimball
