Too often we bask in our comfortable complacency and rationalize that the ravages of war, economic disaster, famine, and earthquake cannot happen here. Those who believe this are either not acquainted with the revelations of the Lord, or they do not believe them. Those who smugly think these calamities will not happen, that they somehow will be set aside because of the righteousness of the Saints, are deceived and will rue the day they harbored such a delusion. - Ezra Taft Benson

Prepare the World for the Second Coming

Many of us who love the Lord and His Holy Word found in scriptures and from modern day Prophets and Apostles - are watching for the signs of His coming and seeking to be prepared both spiritually and temporally.

Part of that preparation includes bringing souls unto Him; where they can learn of Him and His truths and be baptized by proper authority for the remission of sins and by way of entering into a covenant with Him to serve Him.  He promises us, that by doing so, we will receive His added strength and protection.  What an incredible gift this is.

Today I share a bit about the importance of missionary work and the role each of us play in the lives of others.  If we have truth we should share it.  For those who are seeking greater light and knowledge, we hope you will feel free to ask questions. Questions are good; they help us as we seek to find truth.

Preparing the World for the Second Coming

It requires sacrifice on the part of many but the sacrifices are worth it.

My son is currently serving as an LDS/Mormon Missionary in Idaho.  He loves it.  He loves the people and he loves the area; yet it is also long and laborious and hard work.  He wouldn't trade it for anything but often asks us for additional prayers that he may honorably and nobly fulfill this call to serve the Lord full-time (for 2 years).  Andrew in Idaho
