A heartwarming scene!

Today, I was on my way to some of the Sisters flat and saw two of our Elders on their way to an appointment! I was so touched by their faithfulness and so I followed them without them even knowing for several blocks!
I then caught up with them and told them I was stalking them and caught a picture of Elder Falapapalangi and Elder Battsagaan!
With these Elders having 8 or 9 souls to be saved this month--it reminded me of what one of our dear prophets Spencer W. Kimball said:
“If only you could see the vision as I have, I wish I had your bodies to do the mission work, I would run to every house to teach the gospel and when I could no longer run then I would walk, and when I could no longer walk, I would crawl on my knees, and after my knees were so bloody that I could not use them, I would use my arms to drag myself, and once every muscle in my body was gone I would begin to yell! Oh that you could see the vision that I have."
We are about a great work!! Bless you faithful Elders! WE LOVE YOU!!!

to Sister Porter or anyone who reads this post, I love this quote from Kimball: “If only you could see the vision as I have, I wish I had your bodies to do the mission work, I would run to every house to teach the gospel and when I could no longer run then I would walk, and when I could no longer walk, I would crawl on my knees, and after my knees were so bloody that I could not use them, I would use my arms to drag myself, and once every muscle in my body was gone I would begin to yell! Oh that you could see the vision that I have."
I very much would appreciate anyone who could tell me of its reference. I know it is Kimball, but would like to know if it was a conference talk - fireside address - article in the ensign... this is the second of only two places I have found it on the interenet. cant even find it on the church website.
thank you
