Made adecision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.

Many of us said to our Maker, AS WE UNDERSTOOD HIM: 'God, I offer myself to Thee — to build with me and to do with me as Thou wilt. Relieve me of the bondage of self, that I may better do Thy will. Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of Thy Power, Thy Love, and Thy Way of life. May I do Thy will always!'
