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)

2000 Stripping Warriors

Therefore it sufficeth me that I tell you that two thousand of these young men have taken their weapons of war, and would that I should be their leader; and we have come forth to defend our country.  Alma 56:5


And they had never fought, yet did not fear death; and they did think more upon the liberty of their fathers than they did upon their own lives; yea, they had been taught by their mothers, that if they did not doubt, God would deliver them.  And they rehearsed unto me the words of their mothers, saying:  "We do not doubt our mothers knew it."  Alma 56:47-48

The story of the strippling warriors (all very young teens who volunteered for war to protect their families) is famous in the Book of Mormon. Today, the Primary children presented their program entitled, "I Know the Scriptures are True."  It is always fun to hear the children sing and say their parts, especially the little ones as their still-baby speech sometimes comes out with a different meaning than intended.  The highlight this Sunday was the child who told us about the 2,000 stripping warriors.
