“We strive to follow Jesus Christ by embracing the two great commandments—to love God and to love our neighbor,” said Sister Sharon Eubank, president of Latter-day Saint Charities, who traveled to Finland to speak at a national women’s conference.

“We want to serve those in greatest need without respect to belief or political persuasion or nationality or orientation,” said Sister Eubank. “And the work is to relieve suffering, build stability, promote dignity and strengthen families.”

More than 600 women attended the meeting at Tampere University in Tampere, which was hosted by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Saturday, September 21, 2019. Many women from the community attended the event. Participants came from as far away as the Baltics and the western part of Russia.

Sister Eubank, first counselor in the Church’s Relief Society general presidency, gave a keynote address on how women can serve during all stages of their lives.
