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)

Love One Another

"Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another;  Romans 12:10

The prophet, President Thomas S. Monson with his wife who was recovering from an injury and still very much alive.  (My apologies for the error mixing her up with President Hinckley's wife, who has passed away).
It is worth taking the time to listen to President Thomas S. Monson's message to the Relief Society women in the general meeting held last week.  The dirty wash story is one of my favorites, but he has some other stories in this address that will pull at your heartstrings.  Please take the time in your busy lives to listen to a prophet's voice.  Type in reliefsociety.lds.com and choose, "General Relief Society."  Choose "speakers" and click on President Monson.  I promise you will be well rewarded for watching his talk.

Watch General Conference this weekend, or check in on new.lds.org later and read or listen to the various talks at your leisure after conference is over.  If a people ever needed strength and guidance to cope, particularly in these last days, we do.
