Preach My Gospel is for Your Conversion!

For training this week, my mission president made the comment that Preach My Gospel is for the missionary's conversion. He also told us that if we are studying it everyday then no matter what storms come our way we will never even flinch! That is a very large promise! I know it's true though. 

Our purpose is to invite others to come unto Christ. However, in order to do that effectively, we must be headed  toward Him ourselves. As we refine ourselves we are serving those around us. We are providing them with an example of someone who is diligently working to follow the path that Christ has laid for us. You increase your light which will draw others closer to the fold of our Savior. People are watching you. I promise.

Do you love your friends,family, co-workers, teachers, and peers? Then show it! Draw closer to Christ. Missionary work is the work of love! Be a little better every single day. Do what you know to be right and bring others with you.

I know as I have striven to do this,  my happiness and energy has increased. The work of Christ is energizing. Saying you don't have time is not an excuse. You do have time. You have 24 hours every single day. What is your priority? A book, television, the Internet, or the invaluable worth of the soul of the individual right next to you? We need to prioritize what is really important. I have learned that this is not the time to be timid. Be bold because you are right. You have the gospel of Jesus Christ which is the greatest gift you could give someone. Go and share it!

I invite you all to bring up your beliefs with someone this week. Share a simple testimony about the truthfulness of this gospel. Maybe even invite them to come to your home. The Spirit that resides there will stick out to them and they will desire to learn more about what is so different about you and the Church or Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

I would also invite you to read Doctrine and Covenants 4.

I love you all. I testify that you are a precious child of God and that He knows and loves you!

Go and Bear your testimony!!!

I'm finally put in the field! I can't believe I'm a real missionary
now! I have been so blessed to be in North Carolina in the Charlotte
mission for about a week now.

The week has been amazing so far. I've really learned a lot. I think
the most important thing though is being bold with my faith. Never be
scared to bear your testimony on simple truths. I think I used to get
nervous that I would offend someone if I were to talk about religion.
In all actuality, people are pretty open to talk to you about your

I invite you all to go help the missionaries this week. They love all
the help they can get and you will be blessed beyond belief for your
service. You will feel the Spirit so strongly and you will be a help in
bringing to pass the greatest work on this Earth today. Missionary
work is the work of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I testify that
the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the only true church
on the earth today. It brings happiness and joy to all. God loves you
and hears your prayers!
