Missionary Issue

Before receiving the March 2007 New Era, I had been contemplating whether or not I should plan to serve a mission. This issue helped me to understand what missionary life is like and what it requires. So, to prepare to become a sister missionary I’ve started studying the scriptures, writing in my journal, exercising, cleaning my room, going to bed at 10:30 and getting up at 6:30. I’ve already noticed a wonderful difference in my life! You’ve been very helpful. Aimee G., Missouri

I really enjoyed the March New Era about preparing to go on a mission. It helped me know what I must do to go on a mission and what might happen when I am out in the mission field. I especially liked the article “We’ve Got to Find Her.” After reading that issue, it made me want to go out right now! Ethan H., Idaho

I just received the Spanish Liahona for March 2007 and saw the table of contents for the March New Era at www.lds.org.

What a great idea! I just returned from serving a mission and always loved reading missionary articles in the New Era. But this whole magazine helps those preparing to serve the Lord full-time. Vicki P., Australia

Like Me

I really loved “Harriet’s Firm Foundation” (Nov. 2006). I, too, am the youngest of eight children, and the aunt of many nieces and nephews I love to be around. My family is a great support group and is very strong in the Church. I think it’s so neat to know that there are other people in the world like me. Shay S., Arizona

Gives Me Faith

I love to read the New Era because it gives me faith and courage and helps me solve problems when others tease me. I especially liked the article “The Sound of Giving” (May 2006) because I cannot see very well. I learned that we are His children, no matter what we look like. Thank you very much. Lesieli S., Tonga

January 2007 Poster

The poster in the January 2007 issue is such a wonderful one! It tells what should be on our minds so that we can be in tune with the Spirit of God, and to direct our ways by letting virtue garnish our thoughts unceasingly. I like it because it fits our generation so that we can defend ourselves from the adversary. Segu-baghabo P., Nigeria

Not the Only One

I would like to say how much I enjoyed the article “The Turnaround” (Feb. 2007). The article sounded exactly like my life, only without the trip to Japan. I really appreciate it because it teaches me that I’m not the only one who has been through such an experience. The article really opened my eyes. Thank you so much for all your wonderful articles—I love them all. Ashley S., Nevada
