Russell M. He recognized that advances in modern transportation and communication were going to enable a truly global Church that maintained fidelity to core teachings and practices even as it became rooted in many different cultures. The previous emphasis on emigration of converts from their home countries to Utah was gradually dropped and then reversed.
He taught that Zion was an attitude and a community more than a single place, and that the Church needed to grow locally, wherever it was planted. He committed greater support from Salt Lake City to members living overseas in the form of more frequent visits, and later, the establishment of world regions overseen by General Authorities that lived in their areas.
Soon, Church leaders began to benefit from developing long-standing relationships with Saints around the world, not just in Utah. Under President McKay, the first stakes outside of the United States were created and a program of building temples to serve those stakes began.
The translation program of the Church became established. General Conference began to be broadcast beyond North America. And modern media was used to present the temple endowment in multiple languages. President McKay also recognized the problem for the domestic and international growth of the Church of the racist priesthood policy that was then in place, denying priesthood and temple blessings to people of African heritage. He let it be known that he regarded the ban as a policy—not a doctrine—that could and one day would be rescinded, and he took steps to narrow the application of the policy as far as he could without eliminating it.

Prince and Wm. Robert Wright, David O. Lord of the Nations, we bow the knee before thee and acknowledge thee in love and humility to be our God.
Grant that we, like thy servant David O. McKay, may be agents of peace among all the people of the earth. Accept of the gifts we offer thee in our weakness, and turn them by thy grace to the building of thy kingdom, that righteousness may increase in the earth and that all who have breath may praise thee—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Isaiah —4. Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, in whom my soul delights; I have put my spirit upon him; he will bring forth justice to the nations. He will not cry or lift up his voice, or make it heard in the street; a bruised reed he will not break, and a dimly burning wick he will not quench; he will faithfully bring forth justice.
He will not grow faint or be crushed until he has established justice in the earth; and the coastlands wait for his teaching. Mark — The one who believes and is baptized will be saved; but the one who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: by using my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes in their hands, and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.

All these are activated by one and the same Spirit, who allots to each one individually just as the Spirit chooses. Doctrine and Covenants —5.

Hearken, O ye people of my church, saith the voice of him who dwells on high, and whose eyes are upon all men; yea, verily I say: Hearken ye people from afar; and ye that are upon the islands of the sea, listen together. For verily the voice of the Lord is unto all men, and there is none to escape; and there is no eye that shall not see, neither ear that shall not hear, neither heart that shall not be penetrated.
And the rebellious shall be pierced with much sorrow; for their iniquities shall be spoken upon the housetops, and their secret acts shall be revealed.
