Show You Care

As Jesus ministered to those around Him, He lifted the needy, gave hope to the discouraged, and sought out the lost. By His actions He showed people that He loved, understood, and appreciated them. Here are some ways we can follow the Savior’s example and minister to others during group activities:

  • See others as the Savior would see them.

  • Mingle with everyone, not just close friends.

  • Give everyone a chance to join in the conversation and feel part of the group.

  • Make an effort to learn something new about someone. This effort will require asking questions and then listening.

  • Share with others positive things you know about someone.

  • Call people by their names.

  • Make an effort to help others feel valued by expressing sincere encouragement and appreciation.

Your Example

As the youth of the Church, your influence, your example can be a determining factor in someone’s conversion to or lack of interest in the message of the Restoration of the gospel. Watch your physical appearance, your thoughts, your language, your actions.” —Elder Charles Didier of the Presidency of the Seventy, “The Power of Example,” New Era, Oct. 1978, 5.

Putting It Together

“It’s great to combine learning a skill with fulfilling a Personal Progress project and serving a member of the ward,” said one of the young women of the Exeter Ward, Plymouth England Stake. The young women made a quilt for Sister Etta Cunningham, an aging ward member who was then suffering from cancer. The girls enjoyed the project as they learned a lot about piecing quilts. They also learned about having compassion for their elders.

Before Sister Cunningham passed away, she sent the girls a thank-you note, which they now keep in their Young Women book of remembrance.

175th Anniversary of the Church

On April 6, 1830, 175 years ago this month, the Church was formally organized. In a simple meeting held in the home of Peter Whitmer Sr. and attended by around 60 people, 24-year-old Joseph Smith joined with five others—Oliver Cowdery, Hyrum and Samuel Smith, and David and Peter Whitmer Jr.—to meet New York’s legal requirements for forming a religious society.

After a prayer, Joseph asked those present if they were willing to accept him and Oliver as their spiritual advisers. Although they had already received the Melchizedek Priesthood, Joseph and Oliver ordained each other to the office of elder. They did this to signify that they were elders in the newly organized Church. The sacrament was administered, then Joseph and Oliver confirmed those who had been baptized as members of the Church. Next, some of the men were ordained to various priesthood offices. Following the meeting, others were baptized, including Joseph’s mother and father.
