March 2010

Welcome to the new El Dorado Ward Relief Society Blog! We are excited to welcome our new presidency Shanna Behling, Judy Moor, Virginia Bird, and Joyce Godi. We are thankful for the service and love received from our last presidency Joy Baird, Tina Arnell, Myrna Elias, and Barbara Emmett.

Presidency Message
The greatest gift that our Heavenly Father has bestowed upon us is the gift of the Holy Ghost. It gives us a testimony of Jesus Christ and of his work on the earth. It brings us comfort in times of trials and tribulations. It prompts us to do the will of the Lord. As we are bombarded from every side by the adversary, we need this gift more than ever. May we all strive to live worthy to have this great gift of the Holy Ghost with us on a daily basis. --Your Relief Society Presidency
