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)

Oh, Say What is Truth-A Myth Cannot Be

Pegasus, in Greek Mythology, was the winged horse ridden by Bellerophon.  This particular one is found in the Darwen Aldridge Academy just down the road from us (the one Prince William and Kate visited before they got married).  It is made of horse shoes!!  The Pegasus never existed in real life, but it is a great myth.  In this modern era, with all its technology and media, we are swamped with myths of all sorts.  A person must be on guard to avoid being sucked into believing everything they read, see, or hear.  Using the power of discernment is critical.  Below is something that is NOT a myth.  Myths and truths are opposites. 

From the introduction in the Book of Mormon:

"We invite all men everywhere to read the Book of Mormon, to ponder in their hearts the message it contains, and then to ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ if the book is true.  Those who pursue this course and ask in faith will gain a testimony of its truth and divinity by the power of the Holy Ghost.  (See Moroni 10:3-5).
Those who gain this divine witness from the Holy Spirit will also come to know by the same power

Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world 

and that

Joseph Smith is his revelator and prophet in these last days,

and that 

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lord's kingdom once again established on the earth,
preparatory to the second coming of the Messiah."

I testify to you I know these things are true.
