Presidency Message: Advocates for God's Little Children
Primary workers, thank you for all you do in serving the Lord's littlest children. As we have visited, we see the dedication and love that you serve with. Please take the time to reread Chapter 3 of the Handbook which teaches us to minister to others. 3.2.3 ""Like the Savior, leaders seek to minister to individuals and families, both spiritually and temporally. They care about each person, not just about managing an organization....remember their names....love them..watch over them...strengthen their faith 'one by one' as the Savior did." You have been given a sacred responsibility to watch over the most precious, pure, and defenseless of his children on Earth. Be the advocate for this young children the Savior would be.
In 3 Nephi 17:24 the Lord ministered to the little ones and called down angels to help minister. "And they saw the heavens open, and they saw angels descending out of heaven as it were in the midst of fire; and they can down and encircles those little ones about, and they were encircled about with fire; and the angles did minister unto them." Today, as the Savior himself can not be here with us, he has called you to be those angles to minister to his precious ones. We appreciate you. We realize the magnitude of your chosen calling, and are grateful for your service. May God bless you, your homes, and your primary.
