“Anxiously Engaged,” Liahona, January 2016, 17
Latter-day Saints are “anxiously engaged” (see D&C 58:27) in doing good throughout the world. Here are some highlights from last year:
In Honduras, 600 Latter-day Saint youth worked alongside community members and medical and military representatives to clean areas that attract mosquitoes.
In India, Latter-day Saints youth painted hallways and cleaned classrooms in the Government Girls High School in Hyderabad.
In Latvia, members—dressed in Mormon Helping Hands vests and T-shirts—cleaned a community area, gathering 70 bags of trash.
In Tonga, Latter-day Saints gathered and sent cassava and breadfruit to Vanuatu, to assist victims of Cyclone Pam.
In Malaysia, the Church worked with government agencies to provide cooking and refrigeration appliances to victims of flooding and taught women how to cook using an electric mixer and an oven.
In the Solomon Islands, members helped install tanks to provide clean water for about 2,000 people.
In Russia, Latter-day Saints joined in an Easter weekend community cleanup.
In Turkey, Church members joined an interfaith choir that included Catholics, Protestants, and Muslims.
