In the Saturday morning session of October 2010 general conference, President Thomas S. Monson issued a call for more missionaries.
To the young men and sisters he said, “I admonish you to prepare for service as a missionary. Keep yourselves clean and pure and worthy to represent the Lord. Maintain your health and strength. Study the scriptures. Where such is available, participate in seminary or institute. Familiarize yourself with the missionary handbook Preach My Gospel.”
To mature brothers and sisters he said, “I urge you to prepare now for the day when you and your spouse might [serve a couples mission]. … There are few times in your lives when you will enjoy the sweet spirit and satisfaction that come from giving full-time service together in the work of the Master.”
Let us open our hearts to the words of a living prophet and follow him. The following photographs feature various facets of missionary work.
