Missions are Fun

A missionary is someone who leaves his or her home for a little while so others can have their families forever.

Curious about Mormons? Go to the source and find real people at mormon.org--read what they believe and have live chats if you wish! (an official Church website)

Or, go to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, official web site: lds.org.

Our Mission Scriptures

Our Mission Scriptures:

"Oh, that I were an angel, and could have the wish of mine heart . . . Yea, I would declare unto every soul, as with the voice of thunder, repentance and the plan of redemption, that they should repent and come unto our God, that there might not be more sorrow upon all the face of the earth." Alma 29:1-2 (Book of Mormon)

" . . . be ye steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord." 1 Corinthians 15:58 (Bible)

Have a New Year Revolution

 And a little child shall lead them.  2 Nephi 21:6

A little girl stood up in Sacrament meeting today and said she had made a "New Year's revolution" to go without two meals on fast Sunday. She said that as she suffered with hunger pains today it suddenly dawned on her she was helping hungry little children in the world. She said she then thought of how much more pain Jesus Christ suffered as he bled from every pore in Gethsemane.

She concluded with, "I have a testimony that fasting is good, so that is why my New Year's revolution is to fast and put up with a little pain to help the hungry boys and girls and other people in the world."
