Here is a definition provided by http://www.providentliving.org/.
“The stake presidency [or bishopric] . . . may call welfare specialists to assist the stake [or ward] welfare committee as needed. These specialists should be stake [or ward] members who can assist other members in such things as finding employment, improving nutrition and sanitation, storing food, obtaining health care, improving literacy, managing finances, and helping meet other welfare needs”
I truly feel called of God to serve in this committee. He has been inspiring me all week on ways I can serve and how to get this committee going. All this days before I was even asked by our Bishop.
Sister Duke and I had our first meeting yesterday as a committee and we already have so much planned for this month and next month. I can't wait to share the news with our ward, but for now it will have to wait. Other helpful tips I will also pass on to my family and friends. I may have to start a different blog, but I will let you all know.
