By Notice dated May 15, 2018, President Russell M. Nelson has asked that all youth who attend his June 2018 Worldwide Devotional be given a copy of the For the Strength of Youth booklet at the conclusion of the devotional. The devotional will be rebroadcast to the Africa West Area on Saturday and Sunday, June 9 and 10, 2018. The broadcast times on both days is 3:00 pm UTC in Ghana, Cote d’Ivoire, Togo, Liberia, and Sierra Leone, and 4:00 pm in Nigeria and Benin.
In coordination with Church Headquarters, the Africa West Area Offices are working to ensure that each unit of the Church timely receives an adequate number of copies of the booklet. We expect that local leaders (bishoprics, young men presidencies, young women presidencies, quorum and class presidencies) will apply the principle of one take one ministering to help each youth attend this important devotional, and receive a copy of the booklet.
Some units will receive the booklets by June 1, others by June 7. Any questions should be directed to the distribution manager, who can be contacted at +233 244 329 134 or FrimpongD@ldschurch.org. We will follow up through established priesthood channels to receive a one-by-one report on who attended the devotional and who received and who did not receive a copy of the booklet.
We thank you for your inspired, loving service in preparing each young man to receive the Melchizedek Priesthood, to receive the ordinances of the temple, and to be worthy and prepared to serve a full-time mission. And, we are likewise grateful for your inspired, loving service in preparing each young woman to be worthy to make and keep sacred covenants, to receive the ordinances of the temple, and to be worthy and prepared to serve a full-time mission if such is her desire.
