[To My Friends] THU 11 OCT 2018–Make steady and sincere efforts to help our friends!

What kind of difficulties are
  our friends undergoing?
What are they seeking?
Having a deep understanding of
  their needs and concerns is the
  first step toward encouraging them.
Make steady and sincere efforts,
  and don’t be impatient!
