I was having a conversation with a TBM friend recently. We were talking about the church. He mentioned to me that his ward is giving out money to people who are not members of the church. He also said he is in the "Bishopric" and he knows this for a fact, because he is there late at night, on Sundays giving out money. I found this hard to believe, because I have had experiences where I have tried to get help from friends who are not members of the church. The Bishop told m they have to be members of the church to receive help from the church. I am also aware of, through friends who have been Bishop's that their wards where told not to give to non-members and that they need to try to keep the ward welfare numbers down. However, they can give vouchers for food from the cannery. Does anyone know if the policies have changed in the church? Or is my friend, lying for the Lard?
