Joint Priesthood/Relief Society/Youth Meeting
We watched a few videos on member missionary work.
Some thoughts from the Hymn “Because I Have Been Given Much”
It talks of having received a lot and needing to share it with others. It talks of not being able to stand by while others lack something that we have and not share it with them.

Speaking of General Conference speakers Elder Holland said, "If we teach by the Spirit and you listen by the Spirit, some one of us will touch on your circumstance, sending a personal prophetic epistle just to you." (“An Ensign to the Nations”, April 2011 General Conference)
Does conference ever seem like a rerun? Should we be bothered that we hear the same topics covered over and over? Perhaps we should be bothered, because that likely means the Church and likely us personally are not getting it.
If the brethren hit a topic hard for years and then stop, does that mean that we have gotten it or just that our time is up and more pressing matters need to be discussed?
Testimony Meeting Missionary work can also be to active members of the church. We never know who needs what, even when things appear to be going perfect with them.
