    Pres. Monson's ministry has been much of the inspiration driving my own humble attempts to reduce human suffering and serve those in need. Guided by his teachings, and even more by his actions, I’ve been blessed to help establish dozens of NGOs now in over 30 nations, which collectively raised more than $30 million in 2012 alone. Mormon principles of being “anxiously engaged in a good cause,“ with the capacity to empower the poorest of the poor around the globe has been my life’s calling since the 1970s. With the Prophet as a role model, I have learned there are no limits to how many impacts we can have using our own free will while being inspired by the Lord.

    Excellent article. To bad so many have turned on the poor and needy. I call it blaming the poor for being poor. Many view the poor as lazy, unmotivated, and unwilling to work. If you don't believe me go on line and read the posts on any article related to the economy. Some people want to pick and choose who they feel is deserving of their charity.
