After years of preparation, the gospel is spreading quickly in Africa. Years before the revelation on priesthood was received in 1978, the Lord was preparing people in Africa to receive the gospel. See “A People Prepared” (page 32) and “Gospel Pioneers in Africa” (page 36). (Cover photography by E. Dale LeBaron.)

    Inside back cover: Johannesburg South Africa Temple. In the temple’s dedicatory prayer, delivered in August 1985, President Gordon B. Hinckley asked: “Almighty God, wilt thou overrule for the blessing and safety of thy faithful Saints. We pray for peace in this troubled land. … May the presence of thy house on the soil of this land bring blessings to the entire nation.” (See related article, “Gospel Pioneers in Africa,” page 36.)
