Friends, Responsibility & Nourishment In The Word

President Gordon B. Hinckley counseled that new converts need friends, responsibility and nourishment in the good word of God.

A milkman from Maine and his wife introduced the gospel to many families and neighbors. After teaching them the gospel, the milkman, who was the bishop of his ward, called the newly converted families to share the gospel with other families. He also called the newly converted families to lead classes for families interested in learning the gospel. Miraculously, more than 600 people were baptized in less than two years.
