The President of the five and half million women of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints recently visited in Ghana. Julie B. Beck is the first general president of the Church's organization
for women, The Relief Society, to visit Ghana in at least six years.
While President Julie B. Beck was in Ghana she visited villages in rural Ghana and also members of the Church in those areas. She visited a local LDS congregation in Accra and also trained the local church Relief Society Presidents of the Accra area. She presented her message to approximately 450 men and women in this area. Her husband, Ramon, spoke briefly to the audience, as did President Beck, and then she also answered questions from the audience.
When asked what she felt was the biggest challenge facing women in the world today, President Julie Beck said she felt it was to truly know their identity. She said she felt women need to know who they are as daughters of God and live up to that knowledge.
She said women of all faiths must live their faith, take care of their families and provide relief to those in need, offer relief from doubt, and relief from everything that stops the progress of women.Julie Beck is the mother of three grown children, grandmother to 10, and lives in Alpine, Utah in the United States.
