Dedicated
About 100 specially invited
guests participated in the dedi
cation services of the new Mis
sion Home of the Southwest Indian
Mission in Holbrook, Arizona on
Sunday, December 8, The South
west Indian Mission is one of the
Many Missions of the Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Elder Spencer W. Kimball of the
Council of the Twelve Apostles
was the featured speaker and also
offered the Dedicatory Prayer.
Words of advice, comment and
historical interest were also giv
en by Mayor William M. Smith
of Holbrook, Judge Don Udall,
and President and Sister J. Ed
win Baird of the Mission.
Music was provided by six
Lamanite (Indian) Missionaries
including 4 Navajos, 1 Hopi, and
1 Hawaiian.
Most of the speakers noted the
wonderful progress and leadership
that is being shown by the Indian
Peoples in the recent years and
of the great promises made to
them through the Book of Mormon.
Elder Kimball dedicated the
home to the use of the Mission
in the work that is being done
in 11 western and northern States.
Mormon Missionaries of the
Southwest Indian Mission can be
found working with most all of the
North American Indians.
All who were present left with
a greater concept of the work that
is being done among the Indian
People. It was especially pointed
out that the Indian tribes of Amer
ica are great people. That they
are becoming more and more able
to direct and guide their own act
ivities and handle their own prob
lems f
