Another thought on perceived prestige

Joseph Fielding Smith, in the October 1955 general conference, reporting on his recent trip to dedicate a number of areas in Southeast Asia and the western North Pacific (e.g., Korea, the Philippines) for preaching:

Now I want to say to you mothers, particularly, fathers, too…If your sons are called to go to the Far East to labor among the Japanese people, the Korean people, the people on these islands of the Far Pacific, do not feel disappointed. Do not feel sorry and wish that they had been appointed to some European country or somewhere within the borders of the United States or the South Pacific.

It’s just…interesting. That’s all.
