Sent out during the quadrennium and this all done and
supported by the women of our beloved Zion. Could we
do it? Yes. May we do it? Yes.
This is our opportunity. Will we obey? May Jehovah
open our eyes and let us see. This is the hour of prepara-
tion. I believe that although we are very few in number,
comparatively speaking, our Heavenly Father has a very
definite work for us as missionary workers to do at this
fearful crisis. As we meet in our monthly or bi-monthly
meetings this year, and now in convention assembled, let
us be very quiet that we may hear His voice as He may
speak to us.
As we pray let us not go to our dear Heavenly Father
filled with our own aspiration and preconceived notions of
what we think ought to be or ought not to be. Let us
pray Elisha's prayer, "Jehovah I pray thee open his eyes
that he may see." Oh! that amid the confusion and sor-
row we may see this year as never before that around us
is God's protecting care and may we be willing and ready
to do our part. Again I say, God has something for each
one of us to do in His plan for the redemption of the
world. I am not able to say just where each one of us may
fit into this program. May we, through no neglect or
short-sightedness, thwart the divine design for our lives.
