Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great.
Doctrine and Covenants 64:33
"We have a responsibility to extend help as well as hope to the hungry, to the homeless, and to the downtrodden, both at home and abroad," President Thomas S. Monson of the First Presidency declared during the April 1990 general conference. "Such assistance is being provided for the blessing of all. In a host of cities, where need has outdistanced help, lives have been lifted, hearts have been touched, and the frown of despair has been transformed into the smile of confidence, thanks to the generosity of the Church membership in the payment of their fast offerings as the Lord has commanded."
