In the 1990s, it became clear that temple blessings must be within reach of Church members in remote areas. In 1997 President Gordon B. Hinckley announced 30 small temples. By the end of his life, the Church’s number of temples was well over 100.

In this world so filled with problems, so constantly threatened by dark and evil challenges, you can and must rise above mediocrity, above indifference. You can become involved and speak with a strong voice for that which is right.
—  Gordon B. Hinckley
Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, but with great and strong purpose in your heart. Love life and look for its opportunities
—  Gordon B. Hinckley
Please don’t nag yourselves with thoughts of failure. Do not set goals far beyond your capacity to achieve. Simply do what you can do, in the best way you know how, and the Lord will accept your effort.

You are good. But it is not enough just to be good. You must be good for something. You must contribute good to the world. The world must be a better place for your presence. And the good that is in you must be spread to others.
