We all know how it feels to get something new; it’s exciting and causes a lifting of our spirits.
For those who minister in cultures with impoverished areas, coming to the General Assembly as delegates is an overwhelming financial expense. Alma’s Closet provides a lift that lasts even as they return to their field of duty.
Alma Kelley’s burden for those missionary wives who attended the General Assembly without new clothing compelled her to action. She invested her time and energy in a program whereby local churches and individuals could donate new clothing that would be distributed by World Missions at the Pre-Assembly Missions Conference.
To the delight of everyone, clothing came from all corners of the United States and in recent years, accessories were added to the appeal. The cost of attending the General Assembly is high in itself. The unexpected addition of receiving new clothing was met with deep appreciation and emotion.
Although Alma has gone to her heavenly reward, she would be gratified that her living legacy is still being fulfilled. She has created wonderful memories that will not be soon forgotten!
