—— DAILY ENCOURAGEMENT —-
““Whenever I meet people, I do my best to encourage them to the very end. Even if they were to go to the remotest parts of the earth . . . , I will do whatever I can to support them. . . . I want them to personally experience the wonderful benefit to be gained through exerting oneself in faith.”
