After General Conference, our stake Relief Society immediately went into action to look for ways that members of our stake can help serve the refugees. While nothing has been finalized yet, research is in the works! Here is an e-mail that our Relief Society President, Sister Chambers, sent to the ward Relief Society presidents of the stake:
The Highlands Ranch Stake Relief Society Presidency has met to discuss how we can respond to the “I was a Stranger” directive that was given during General Conference by Sister Linda K. Burton and Elder Patrick Kearon.
As we pray for guidance, we are counseling with our Stake Council, the Stake Young Women leaders, and the Stake Primary leaders. We seek to:
-Aid refugees in our local area.
-Give person to person assistance.
We are currently investigating several avenues for service and we will share with you our plan for service as it develops.
We encourage you to prayerfully study the information on the “I was a Stranger” website, council together, then move forward in providing relief to local refugees.
May the Lord bless us all.
