I Was a Stranger: Love One Another

When one woman helped a young refugee from the Ivory Coast, her service created a friendship that blessed them both.

During the general women’s session of the April 2016 general conference, Sister Linda K. Burton, general president of the Relief Society, announced the launch of a relief effort called “I Was a Stranger,” which focuses on serving refugees.

“It is our hope that you will prayerfully determine what you can do according to your own time and circumstances to serve the refugees living in your neighborhoods and communities,” Sister Burton said. “This is an opportunity to serve one on one, in families, and by organizations to offer friendship, mentoring, and other Christlike service and is one of many ways sisters can serve.”
