Let’s help others transform
“worry” and “resignation” into
“hope” and “courage”!
Encouragement emanating from
a great life force will inspire
our fellow members to change
their inner resolve.
Let’s make wholehearted efforts
to provide guidance and advice
in faith!

Let’s stand up courageously with
great conviction!
