David O. McKay Around the World
No current Talk conversations about this book.
Many years before he became the leader of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, David O. McKay spread the gospel on an extraordinary mission around the world. This mission broadened the horizons of the Church. In 1920, Elder McKay was formally called by President Heber J. Grant to visit the Orient, the Pacific and Asia. Elder McKay selected Hugh J. Cannon, a son of George Q. Cannon and the Liberty Stake President, to accompany him. Over the course of a year, from December 4, 1920 to December 23, 1921, they sought out Church members in remote areas, and they had numerous spiritual experiences that demonstrated the hand of the Lord in their efforts. Their many accomplishments included visits to China, Egypt, and many Pacific islands. Following their return to the United States, Elder McKay asked President Cannon to write down these experiences, which he did. The completed handwritten manuscript was misplaced and not found for many years. Now, nearly a century later, the details of that historic journey have finally come forth.
