“There is a portent of stormy weather ahead to which we had better give heed…No one knows when emergencies will strike…Set your houses in order. If you have paid your debts, if you have a reserve, even though it be small, then should storms howl about your head, you will have shelter for your wife and children and peace in your hearts. That’s all I have to say about it, but I wish to say it with all the emphasis of which I am capable” (CR, Gordon B. Hinckley, Oct. 1998, 70-72; Ensign, Nov. 1998, 53-54).

Remember to visit your Sisters. I know I appreciate when I am visited by my visiting teachers, it always helps uplift.
Remember those who are less fortunate even if all you can afford is to pray for them!
I am thankful for all I have learned in this calling and hope in some way I have been helpful to you. I am proud of you when I hear good stories of neat things you do for each other and for those in need and what you are doing to live the gospel. It makes me proud to be in our ward. Thank you everyone.
