Strength in Youth

Our young people can carry with them a great spirit. We have several non-members who attend our mutual activities and even Sunday classes. The other day we reorganized the Young Women's class presidencies and I made a comment to one of the visitors that I could see her presiding in one of these classes and that I hoped one day she could, but that she would have to be a member of the organization in order to preside. Tonight the missionaries stopped by to tell me that this young lady wanted to be baptized because she wanted to someday serve in a presidency. Being one of the Lord's followers isn't easy but it is good. I am pleased by her attitude and that His Spirit could be felt through something I said. I know he loves his children.
