In a recent Ensign article it shared a quote about pioneer sisters crossing the plains. "They found spiritual strength in each other's love and compassion... As they suffered trials of illness and death, they prayed in faith for each other and comforted each other. The love of God flowed from heart to heart till the wicked one seemed powerless in his efforts to get between us and the Lord, and his cruel darts, in some instances, were shorn of their sting."
We have sisters from America, Austrailia, France, and Tahiti, but despite these cultural backgrounds, there is a bond of strength and love. I'm grateful to have felt that bond more profoundly this week as we comforted each other in trials and delighted in success and the good choices of others.
The gospel binds.
