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)

A Poem to Live By--Be a Light




Only One

One candle
small
can light the darkest
wall.

One candle
lighted
can warm a spot that’s
blighted.

One candle
giving
can lend hope in
living.

One candle
flickering
can still useless
bickering.

One candle
shining
can save by gently
guiding.

One candle
existing
can keep a faith
persisting.

One candle
flame
can be you and me the
same.

-Roberta Blain, December 2002
