("'I'm a Mormon' ad campaign to expand", Deseret News, Friday 30 September 2011, A13)

A article announced Monday 3 October 2011 that, "The campaign is also spreading internationally with ads in Brisbane, Australia."

This campaign is wonderful news, a sign that the Church is "rising up and . . . coming forth . . . out of the wilderness—clear as the moon, and fair as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners" (D&C 5:14).  The Latter-day Saints must not get ahead of themselves, however.  This publicity will bring hundreds of thousands of new converts into the only true and living Church, but will also bring many watchful eyes upon the individual Latter-day Saint.  Therefore, The Mormon Eagle admonishes all - but especially the Latter-day Saints - to follow the words of President Brigham Young.  Said he, "Every moment of my life must be holiness to the Lord, resulting from equity, justice, mercy and uprightness in all my actions, which is the only course by which I can preserve the Spirit of the Almighty to myself" (Deseret News, 2 April 1862, p. 313).  I know if we do as President Young counsels, the Lord will bless us with the greatest of all blessings both in this life, and in the life to come.  In the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
