I found this cool quote in The coming of the Lord by Gerald Lund written in 1971.
He quotes President David o. McKay from 1935
"If we have in mind the physical Zion, then we must strive for more fertile acres; bring from the mountains gold and silver in abundance; found factories to furnish more employment; extend in length and width our concrete public highways; build banks to protect or to dissipate, as has been the case recently, the wealth we accumulate; transform our vast coal fields into electricity that will furnish light, heat and power to every family; improve the means of communication until with radio in our pockets we may communicate with friends and loved ones from any point at any given moment. Is it these physical phases of Zion which we are to build? Certainly it is difficult to picture the City of Zion without at least some- if not all- such modern necessities and luxuries." It appears to build zion we are going to need cell phones.
