During the second devotional of the 2007-2008 school year, Isileli T. Kongaika told audience members as they develop characteristics of charity they will be a force to spread peace internationally, as President David O. McKay prophesied over 50 years ago.
'Without doubt, my brothers and sisters, our purpose here at this university is to fulfill this prophetic vision to become international peacemakers. To you…I extend this invitation," the vice president of student life said.
The biggest challenge facing this goal is not accepting racial and cultural differences, Kongaika said. "How about asking yourself this question: Do you, as an international peacemaker, still have an issue with this, because somebody is different?"
