Mission Plaque

Here is a picture of the plaque that is displayed in our meeting house:

Notice the scripture!

What it says is "Alma 26:5 And now in the reign of Mosiah they were not half so numerous as the people of God; but because of the dissensions among the brethren they became more numerous."  - totally random.

At first we were horrified and thought that we had given the wrong scripture reference.  After some checking we discovered that the above reference is actually MOSIAH 26:5.  Alma 26:5 actually reads "Behold, the field was ripe, and blessed are ye, for ye did thrust in the sickle, and did reap with your might, yea, all the day long did ye labor; and behold the number of your sheaves! And they shall be gathered into the garners, that they are not wasted." - a much more missionary-oriented verse!

We think it is really funny that such a random verse is written on his plaque for all to see.  A counselor in the Bishopric said that when he first saw it he thought Daniel must be a really deep thinker because he had no idea why he would pick such a verse.
