President Eyring and the LDS Conference Talk that No One is Talking About

The most important talk given at the Spring 2015 LDS General Conference was given by President Henry B. Eyring:

When we offer succor to anyone, the Savior feels it as if we reached out to succor Him.

There are more hungry, homeless, and lonely children of Heavenly Father than we can possibly reach.  And the numbers grow ever farther from our reach.

So the Lord has given us something that we each can do.  It is commandment so simple that a child can understand it.

It is the law of the fast.

In the Church today we are offered the opportunity to fast once a month and give generous fast offering through our bishop or branch president for the benefit of the poor and needy.

Your fast offering will do more than help feed and clothe bodies. It will heal and change hearts.

It is important that we understand that the majority of us in United States and Canada are blessed beyond belief.  It is also important that we understand that we need to “succor” those in need.  Fast offerings are a great way to start.  But it is only a start.  Please volunteer with a local humanitarian organization (NGO).  There are many good ones around.  Some that help locally, some that help nationally, and some that help internationally.  I promise that it will change your life forever and be a great example to your children.
