• The day of the Lamanites is nigh. For years they have been
growing delightsome, and they are now becoming white and
delightsome, as they were promised (2_Ne. 30:6). In this picture
of the twenty Lamanite missionaries, fifteen of the twenty were as
light as Anglos; five were
darker but equally delightsome. The
children in the home placement program in Utah are
often lighter
than their brothers and
sisters in the hogans on the reservation.
At one meeting a father and mother and their sixteen-year-old daughter were present, the
little member girl-sixteen-sitting between the dark father and mother, and it was
evident
she was
several shades lighter than her parents-on the same
reservation, in the same
hogan, subject to the same sun
and wind and weather. There was the doctor in a
Utah city
who for two years had had an Indian boy in his home who stated that he was some shades
lighter than the younger brother just coming into the program from the reservation. These
young members of the Church are changing to whiteness and to delightsomeness. One
white elder jokingly said that he and his companion were donating blood regularly
to the hospital in the hope that the process might be accelerated.
Spencer W. Kimball, Conference Report October 1960, pp. 32-37
