Her further promise is to fulfill the Word of God that orders her footsteps: “I strive to love every individual I encounter with the pure love of Christ and sincerity of meaning. I purpose my life to go into all the nations and spread the Gospel Truth that Jesus Christ is yet alive and with us!” (Mark 16:15)
