The New York Conference has a church school near the office location. A conference officer who visited saw that many students were wearing only one glove.


“Why are so many of you wearing only one glove?” he inquired.


“We share our gloves with the immigrant students. They don’t have gloves of their own. When we share, we can all go outside to play in the snow!” Each student had one hand in a pocket and one hand in a glove.


The conference leader could scarcely believe the unselfish actions of the students. He investigated further and found that some students had no socks or proper shoes for the winter.


He hurried to send this information about the immigrant students and their needs throughout the conference. Donations rolled in for socks, shoes, gloves, coats, and sweaters. By the end of the week, these precious children of God received the warm clothing that they needed.


Christ is clear. “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” Matthew 25:40


When we as a conference come together for the Lord, great things will happen. Many needs are too great for one person to meet. But working as a team, we accomplish great things. Today, as we give to the Conference Advance, let us remember how we can touch the lives of others for Christ.
