"When we can put aside our differences and value each others’ strengths, great things happen." —Ellen W. Smoot

Years ago, Samuel Hislop moved to Eastern Ukraine as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He discovered that people around the world, who come from cultural and religious backgrounds very different from his, have much to teach him as well.

“I believe we have gaps in our souls that can only be filled by each other—by learning from those who don’t think, act, and believe the way we do. I truly believe one of the greatest gifts God gives us in this life, is the opportunity to learn from each other.”

Learn how and why Samuel proposes we change the way we think about people and ideas that are new to us in this inspiring Hope Works presentation.
