(Many thanks to Maricela Lorenzon for taking all the photographs)
A very special thank you to all the Sisters who were able to make it out for our January Service Project at the RGV Food Bank. What a special way for our Relief Society Sisters to become involved with the community and help those families who are in need.
"There is one gift I would like to focus on—the gift of charity. Use charity, 'the pure love of Christ' (Moro. 7:47), and give service for the right reasons. Charity is the ability to make life more meaningful for others....
"There are times when we need to be lifted. There are times when we need to be strengthened. Be that kind of friend and that kind of person who lifts and strengthens others. Never make someone have to choose between your ways and the Lord's ways. And always make sure that you're making it easier to live God's commandments for those who are by your side and who are your friends. Then you will understand whether you have charity" (Ensign, Feb 2002, 12).
