D&C 1:18; 42:58; Moses 5:58–59
Behold, I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. I have been called of him to declare his word among his people, that they might have everlasting life. 3 Nephi 5:13
Our Father in Heaven wants all His children to return to Him. This is why The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints sends missionaries throughout the world to teach those who want to hear the gospel message.
The Lord has commanded His followers to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ to every nation, kindred, tongue, and people; to preach repentance; and to seek out those who will hear the truth. During every gospel dispensation, the followers of Christ have gone forth in boldness and faith to share the gospel and declare His word. (See D&C 42:58; Moses 5:58–59.)
Today tens of thousands of Latter-day Saints, in fulfillment of prophecy, serve missions around the world for the Church (see D&C 1:18). Young men and women make great contributions to the missionary effort. In addition, several thousand married couples serve as missionaries to support the Lord’s work with their experience and leadership. Missionaries must stand firm in the faith, live by strict standards of worthiness, and support themselves financially.
The Lord commanded us to teach the gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of the world. Today thousands of missionaries are called to go forth in boldness and faith to share the gospel. We should all prepare ourselves to be worthy to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ.
