Cooperation. The Foundation has seen a lot of it in the last three months, from many sides! And the results are rewarding to all, as this issue of the Newsletter should show. We are more efficient, thanks to institutional cooperation from Brigham Young University. We are broader based, thanks to cooperation from the Church Educational System and BYU's Campus Education Week. We are more productive, thanks to new volunteers including Robert Cook, Bill Titera, Marya Reed, Beverly Wilbur, and Michael Graves. We can plan more confidently, thanks to generous gifts and pledges from Stan Johnson, Elizabeth Smith, Clyde Crownover, Don Cerini, ver Moench. and David Reeves. We continue to discover, without surprise, that there is something for everyone to do.
We also sense renewed responsibility, as the Foundation's major focus of interest—the Book of Mormon—received a new christening at October General Conference. Its new subtitle. Another Testament of Jesus Christ, underlines the importance of studying it carefully. Without presumption or oversimplification of the task, F. A. R . M. S. has set its sights on doing for the Book of Mormon what good scholarship over the last 25 years has done for the Bible. To the extent that scholarship can clarify and illuminate, this can help in one more way to make these two scriptures one in our hand.
We continue to be encouraged by your support. We trust that each of you will find the most effective way to personally participate in this important effort. Scholarship, financial resources, research and clerical skills, media and marketing services, and dozens of other talents will get the job done. Please give as you are able as 1982 comes to a close.
