|Isaac Ford from our Centerville home ward, donated glasses to our island. Isaac must have planned, developed, and lead this great service project. "The Eagle Project". It demonstrates both leadership and a commitment to duty just like the handbook says. Isaac was one of Sister Tiffany's Boy Scouts back in the day, and she says he was always a dedicated Scout. |
It was our District Conference weekend here so everyone was in from the outer islands. We had a special broadcast just for the Pacific Islands. This was a perfect time for passing out glasses, so now all can read the scriptures. They began to lineup right after the broadcast and by the time we arrived, it was a pretty long line. We could only have 3 in the room at a time because we needed to make sure they were getting the correct lenses. We used the Articles of Faith for a reading test, which was perfect since that is what the broadcast also talked about. The left over glasses will be donated to the local Womens Center "CWC" here on the island. They are working on getting an optometrist here this summer to help these people.
In Doctrine and Covenants 115:4–6, the Lord invites us to “arise and shine forth” so that our “light may be a standard for the nations.” He asks us to join together to support one another and become a “refuge from the storm.”
