The Errand of Angels.....

From the book 'Daughters in My Kingdom" released in 2012 for all women in the LDS church we read the following...."Elder John A. Widstoe of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles described the foundational work of the Relief Society (largest society of women in the world): 'Relief of poverty, relief of illness; relief of doubt, relief of ignorance -- relief of all that hinders the joy and progress of woman.  What a magnificent commission!'

"Latter-day Saint women, strong in faith and testimony, have truly been given the 'errand of angels.' Elder M. Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles taught:  'Every sister in this Church who has made covenants with the Lord has a divine mandate to help save souls, to lead the women of the world, to strengthen the homes of Zion, and to build the Kingdom of God."  Daughters in My Kingdom, p. 25

Let us go forth and do so is my added prayer!
