A thought from the scriptures

I will call you friends, for you are my friends, and ye shall have an inheritance with me-

I called you servants for the world's sake, and ye are their servants for my sake. - D&C 93:45

At the October 1982 general conference, Elder Robert E. Wells of the First Quorum of the Seventy told of being invited by President Spencer W. Kimball to be his companion in blessing several South American and American Indian children at a children's hospital.

"We went from floor to floor giving blessings to all the Latins and Lamanites and many others too," he recalled. "I was deeply affected by the love of President Kimball and his tender friendship with each child. He was a friend to the sick - a friend to those far from home. He exemplified the tender, loving friendship that the Savior would give. It was easy to see how he could say, `The Savior is my best friend.' "
