I pledge my willing and untiring service to all efforts of the Young People's and Children's Division to aid needy and suffering people, regardless of race, color or creed. I further pledge to take the Bible as my guide, to aid my church, and to attend meetings regularly. In all these tasks I seek the Savior's guidance.
