here are some sections from my farewell talk today -- in case ya missed it and wanted to hear
▲ each and every one of us should be engaged in missionary work, with or without a little black tag…. or in a foreign country speaking an entirely new language.
▲ “Now is the time for members and missionaries to come together and labor in the Lord’s vineyard, to bring souls unto Him. He has prepared the means for us to share the gospel in a multitude of ways, and He will assist us in our labors if we will act in faith to fulfill His work.”
▲ The Lord knows the gospel needs to be spread even more than it already was. It is our responsibility to invite others to come unto Christ. We are asked to spread the knowledge of the truth, and convert people to the gospel.
▲ Mosiah 27:36 // And thus they were instruments in the hands of God in bringing many to the knowledge of the truth, yea, to the knowledge of their Redeemer.”
▲ The Savior has already provided a way for us to live with our Heavenly Father again. We should be eager in wanting to tell everyone of this sacrifice of the atonement. We should want ALL our brothers and sisters to join us at our Heavenly Fathers feet.
▲ “It is impossible for us to fail when we do our best while on the Lord’s errand. Become engaged in doing what you can in sharing the great message of the Restoration of the gospel of Jesus Christ.”
▲ One of the biggest reasons I found myself wanting to serve a mission is to introduce to anyone and everyone the happiness and blessings the gospel brings
▲ “Every time you take someone figuratively by the hand and introduce him or her to Jesus Christ, you will feel how deeply our Savior loves you and loves the person whose hand is in yours.”
▲ Heavenly father is there for us. He loves us. He sent His son to die for us so we can live with Him again….. and we are asked as His children to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.
▲ 3 Nephi 11:41 // Therefore, go forth unto this people and declare the words which I have spoken, unto the ends of the earth.
▲ It is our duty to proclaim the gospel, missionary with a little black tag for 18 months or not
