Alex Boyé, a Latter-day Saint musician, released a cover with a special dedication in honor of the victims of the Brussels bombings, including the four injured missionaries.
LDS Daily reports that the song Boyé covered, “Something Inside So Strong,” was originally written by Labi Siffre in 1987. Boyé explained on Facebook that he was first inspired to write this song from experiences of being ridiculed for specific beliefs.
“Have you ever been ridiculed, isolated and shunned for your beliefs? Ever felt like you stand alone in just trying to do what’s good? That’s where the inspiration from this song originally came from,” Boyé explained on Facebook. “But after hearing the news of the attacks in Brussels, I felt really compelled to use this video as a tribute to the deceased and those injured, including our 4 missionaries caught in the blast.”

Many returned missionaries have told me their most trying experience- contracting Typhoid Fever, getting stabbed, being stoned in the streets, etc. But this is probably the worst set of challenges I’ve ever heard of one missionary having to endure.
I’m amazed at how much this Sister persevered despite so much opposition. Enjoy the video!
Since The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints lowered the qualifying age for missionaries in October 2012, the number of sister missionaries serving worldwide has tripled and now totals more than 22,000. The surge of sister missionaries recently caught the attention of ABC News’ “Nightline,” which aired a segment Tuesday titled “The New Face of Mormonism: Women.”
“For the first time, women are able to become missionaries when they turn 19 instead of 21,” correspondent Juju Chang says in the video. “It may sound like a tiny change, but it is marking a massive revolution.”
The interview features six sister missionaries from three continents who are serving in Orlando, Florida. All of the six missionaries are the first women to serve missions in their families. Chang joins the sister missionaries in door-knocking and teaching appointments. She even learns how to gracefully ride a bicycle in a skirt.
The sister missionaries are not fazed as they answer tough questions and share their testimonies. When asked about how she feels about not holding the priesthood, Sister Rachel Thomson from New Zealand provides a brief response.

This morning I was startled when I saw news about a lawsuit demanding the US Government remove “In God We Trust,” from its currency. Here’s an insightful video by a Book of Mormon scholar, about what will happen to the United States, if it turns its back on God.
“For behold, this is a land which is choice above all other lands; wherefore he that doth possess it shall serve God or shall be swept off; for it is the everlasting decree of God. And it is not until the fulness of iniquity among the children of the land, that they are swept off. And this cometh unto you, O ye Gentiles, that ye may know the decrees of God—that ye may repent, and not continue in your iniquities until the fulness come, that ye may not bring down the fulness of the wrath of God upon you as the inhabitants of the land have hitherto done. Behold, this is a choice land, and whatsoever nation shall possess it shall be free from bondage, and from captivity, and from all other nations under heaven, if they will but serve the God of the land, who is Jesus Christ” (Ether 2:10-12)
