"The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was restored to move throughout the world the knowledge of the life and teachings of the Savior. This great conference is being broadcast in 94 languages by satellite to 102 countries but is also available on the Internet to every nation where the Church is present. We have over 3,000 stakes. Our full-time missionary force exceeds 88,000, and total Church membership has passed 15 million. These numbers serve as evidence that the “stone which is cut out of the mountain without hands” continues to roll forth and will eventually fill “the whole earth” (D&C 65:2).
But no matter how large the organization of the Church becomes or how many millions of members join our ranks, no matter how many continents and countries our missionaries enter or how many different languages we speak, ......
the true success of the gospel of Jesus Christ will be measured by the spiritual strength of its individual members. We need the strength of conviction that is found in the heart of every loyal disciple of Christ.
A testimony of the hope of redemption is something which cannot be measured or counted. Jesus Christ is the source of that hope.
We seek to strengthen the testimonies of the young and old, the married and single. We need to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ to men, women, and children, those of every race and nationality, the rich and the poor. We need the recent convert and those among our numbers descended from the pioneers. We need to seek out those who have strayed and assist them to return to the fold." Boyd K. Packer Oct 2014.
Each and every member of the Kingdom of God here in New Jersey has their own quest, to find the peace of the Savior written in their heart. Unless and until the true spirit of service and genuine giving penetrates our hearts, we will not see the strength and growth in the Kingdom that is very possible here. Learn to give and to serve our fellow man... Be in their homes... Love them and help them to come unto Christ. He is the Savior and Redeemer of all mankind. He Loves each of us perfectly. Let us love Him back and help others to do the same by assisting in this great work. Be His Instrument. Receive His image in your countanance by forgetting self.
