“I promise you that your achievement of the Duty to God Award will provide you with a living testimony that will sustain you throughout your life.” —Elder Robert D. Hales, Quorum of the Twelve Apostles

Young men around the world now have the opportunity to better understand and complete the Duty to God program with the inclusion of materials in dozens of languages on the recently updated Duty to God website.

By clicking on Download a PDF of the Duty to God booklet, deacons, teachers, priests, and leaders can access the entire Fulfilling My Duty to God: For Aaronic Priesthood Holders booklet, including all of the learning activities, in 50 languages.

The language materials also include two introductory videos that explain the Duty to God program to parents, young men, and Young Men leaders in 26 languages.

Finally, the website offers a PDF translated into 23 languages that contains questions and answers about the Duty to God program, newly implemented in 2010. The guide answers questions such as, “How will the new Duty to God program benefit young men?” and “How can parents and quorum advisers help young men succeed in the new program?”

During the October 2001 session of general conference, Elder Robert D. Hales of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles said, “I promise you that your achievement of the Duty to God Award will provide you with a living testimony that will sustain you throughout your life” (“Fulfilling Our Duty to God,” Liahona, Jan. 2002, 43; Ensign, Nov. 2001, 39).
