Missionaries follow the Lord Jesus Christ and teach of Him and of His Atonement.

They teach of the Restoration of Christ’s ancient church through the Lord’s first latter-day prophet, Joseph Smith.

They share the good news of the gospel that will bring true joy and everlasting happiness to all who accept their message.
