Relief Society Presidency Message September, 2012

Dear Sisters,

In the book, Daughters in My Kingdom, page 165, there is a quote by President Hinckley. He says, “May the Lord bless you, my beloved sisters . . . May you be strengthened for the challenges of the day. May you be endowed with wisdom beyond your own in dealing with the problems you constantly face. May your prayers and your pleadings be answered with blessings upon your heads and upon the heads of your loved ones. We leave with you our love and our blessing, that your lives may be filled with peace and gladness. It can be so.”

May you be encouraged and touched by this quote as I was. May you feel the love of your Heavenly Father for you always and His loving arms opened toward you. May you be encouraged to turn to Him in even the seemingly small problems you face each day by taking the time to pray, search the scriptures, and serve others. You will find peace, direction, wisdom beyond your own, and the gladness you seek. I know this to be true.

Packages for our Military and Missionaries

Our Bishopric has asked that the members of the Stevensville 2nd ward prepare care packages for each military service member and missionary from our ward. These boxes will number about 14 and are to be sent in a fairly short amount of time so all assistance is welcome. Watch for more information and collection boxes or contact the Wight family at or 544-9477. Each care package will be personalized as to the needs and positions of each individual. We have men and women, missionaries and members of the military, individuals who are in the states and those who are overseas. Contact a bishopric member to make a cash donation for postage or to purchase needed items. Other donations may include toiletries, small gifts, snacks, etc. Most importantly, please write supportive letters or cards to be included. If you have a missionary or service member from your family, please contact Eve Wight as soon as possible to confirm a mailing address and to make suggestions on customs restrictions and contents for each package.
