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 Little Child Shall Lead Them

" . . . Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of God."  Mark 10:14 
               
Therefore, whoso repenteth and cometh unto me as a little child, him will I receive, for of such is the kingdom of God.  Behold, for such I have laid down my life, and have taken it up again; therefore repent, and come unto me ye ends of the earth, and be saved.  3 Nephi 9:21
This picture of Coco in her father's hands reminds me how we are held in God's hands.  When he sent our spirits to dwell in our earthly bodies, I picture a scene such as this.  Everything is in His hands.  Trust.  Listen.  Obey.  He loves us and wants what is best for us, just like Coca's parents will always have her safety, happiness, and best interests in their hearts.

Enough hats already!  I'm going . . . zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
