Pageant Celebrating the Sacrifice of Early British Converts and Pioneers Held Again in Great Britain

Hello, all! Not sure how I missed this, but the Deseret News ran an article on August 4 regarding this year's revival of a pageant in the UK celebrating the sacrifice of early British Converts and Pioneers. The pageant was first held in 2013 and was meant to be a one-time thing. In fact, all props and background had been disposed of and no one expected it to come back. But in view of the celebrations commemorating the 180th anniversary of the Church being established in Great Britain, leaders and members of the Church in Great Britain and surrounding nations found a way to bring it back.

Elder M. Russell Ballard, whose grandfather Henry joined the Church in England, and who, as noted in earlier posts, served his mission in Great Britain, represented the other 14 apostles there. He was accompanied to the pageant by Elder Patrick Kearon, who wrapped up his service last week as president of the Europe Area and is now serving in the Presidency of the Seventy, and Elder Paul V. Johnson, who will be replacing Elder Kearon as Area President. Click here to read that article.
