Latter-day Saints Get Ready to ‘Come and Help’ in Their Communities

Come and Help service focus for February

The Pacific Area Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints recently invited members and friends of the Church to serve their communities by taking part in February’s “Come and Help Month."

Answering the call, congregations throughout the South Pacific are organizing projects to serve in their communities.

Latter-day Saints and their friends in the Auckland suburb of Penrose are planning to clean a section of the Mangere Bridge waterfront on Saturday, 15 February.


There will also be an opportunity for people to donate food for families in need, and a blood drive at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ meetinghouse on Robertson Road, Mangere.

In Samoa, members of various congregations and their neighbours and friends will be volunteering with the Samoa Victim Support Group, helping elderly villagers, providing meals to families in need, cleaning streets, tidying up a cemetery and a school.

Latter-day Saints strive to follow the teachings and example of Jesus Christ by serving others, at home and in their neighbourhoods. 

Friends of other faiths or other community members are welcome to participate also.
