Every Member a Missionary!
As we know every member of the church should be a missionary. So do you know the missionary purpose? It is “Invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end.”
All missionaries should know this purpose and so as all my children are members of the church they should always be missionaries in example, word and deed. So to my children and grandchildren please memorize this purpose and when we get home we will all repeat this together and be united as a wonderful, faithful, committed family. What? You expected to sit home and do nothing while we are out here serving? Yes, this means my daughter and son in-laws as they are our children too. (Oh if only you would have known before you became a member of this family what would be expected of you.)
We love our Mission President, President Jones and his wife Sister Jones. They truly love the Lord and they love each and every missionary out here even us senior missionaries. They labor unceasingly in service to the Lord. They are on the go almost all the time, the mission area is quite large and they are always keeping in contact with the missionaries to assist, help, teach, inspire, and uplift them in any way they can. I feel a little bit sorry for those in other missions because I am just sure we have the best (at least they are trying very hard to become the very best) missionaries in the whole church and they serve under the direction of one of the most humble, loving, and committed Mission President & Wife I have met. They have truly touched each missionary’s life for good.
I want you to know…The message is true, the labor is sweet, the Lord extends His tender mercies, the Spirit is strong, the people are wonderful and life is good.
