Prayer by Sister Peel
Sister Morrison addressed the Sisters feeling so much pleased to see so many of the Sisters coming to meeting and hoped and prayed that they have come here to be benefited and having their good desire in their heart to come again and unite with the Sisters and celebrate the spirit of God.
The minutes from the former meeting were read and accepted; also the minutes of the 22nd of June. Then Sister Morrison thought it best to put business up to the next meeting and have this meeting for a Testimony meeting; hoped that the Sisters will be free and bear their testimony; urged the Sisters to be grateful and thankful to the Lord that He has brought us out of (?).....and home to Zion. She only wished that we could live (?) before the Lord day after day; exhorted Sisters to be Prayerful and try to overcome that spirit and influence that advise try to overcome us and try to lead us astray. (???)
She talked about the great responsibility that rests upon us as mothers in Israel to raise up our children in truth and righteousness and make them useful for this reat work roll on. She also felt much pleased to hear of the young Sisters, that she had a good meeting where everyone felt the Spirit of God richly manifested.
Sister Peel also bore her Testimony; felt so much benifited in the good meetings she attended when our visiting Sisters were here; especially spoke a good deal about the gospel instruction was given in Fairview; and said that she only wished the spirit would move upon her with that much power as he did when she heard the speaker, but many things slipped from her mind but was sure that it had done much good.
Sister Simpson felt very glad to see so many Sisters together for a good purpose and prayed to God that all may feel to continue and bore her Testimony.
Sister Seely bore her Testimony; felt glad to meet and spoke upon our children. If we do our duty and teach them good principles, we let the .......consequence(?) follow; if we do that in combination with prayer, their actions will not be for us to answer, it will fall to their own condemnation.
Mother Watkins bore her Testimony; felt so glad to be here, thought it was the best meeting she had attended since she came from the old country and said she would come again and wished that her name would be enrolled as a member of the Society.
Many of the Sisters spoke in their own language and a good spirit prevailed.oci
Meeting closed with singing and benediction.
