When we see our church members at church they are alway neat and clean. We have no idea what their home life is like until we go to visit. Then they share with us what little they have with honor. Transportation is such a problem to get them to church.
My heart aches for them.
President Ezra Taft Benson said "We are commanded by God to take this Gospel to all the world. That is the cause that must unite us today. Only the Gospel will save the world from the calamity of its own self-destruction. Only the gospel will unite men of all races and nationalities in peace. Only the gospel will bring joy, happiness, and salvation to the human family."
I know that the gospel of Jesus Christ will be the greatest help for these people. I know that from my own family background. It makes us better people and then we can pull ourselves out. I some times feel helpless for them but I am seeing them take hold of the gospel, their spirits lighten, they see and seize opportunities and children reach for higher education to better themselves. It seems like such a slow process at times. I want a better life for them now. I hurt to see them struggle so hard. I am their cheerleader as they pull themselves to higher heights. I love and care so much for them.
