Our Everyday Warriors!
|Over 1,000 pounds of pure Missionaries....|
There were two thousand of those young men, who entered into this covenant … to defend their country. … They were exceedingly valiant for courage, and also for strength and activity; but behold, this was not all—they were men who were true at all times in whatsoever thing they were entrusted. (Alma 53:18, 20.)
I have been blessed to serve with many great ELDERS. As I have served with them, I have realized how important they are to the progressing of the church. Many people think, WHY do we send out these young men and trust them with the MOST IMPORTANT message in These ELDERS are like the young stripling warriors found in the Book of Mormon. They have been raised by wonderful parents, who have sent them out to teach of truth. In the Book of Mormon story of the stripling warriors, not one of them died during the fight. Every single one of these young warriors were injured, but not one was killed because of God’s protection. As you prepare to serve missions, always remember that these young men went out VALIANTLY, trusting in their God. The warriors had only an idea of what they were getting themselves into, but no experience. You may feel like you do not have the experience to serve, but if you trust in God, you will come out of the fight alive.
