Missionary work

“History shows that since the beginning of the Restoration, sisters have been at the forefront in sharing the gospel, and they continue this effort as they serve missions, prepare young men and women to serve missions, and invite their friends, neighbors, and family members to share in the blessings of the gospel.” (Julie B. Beck, Relief Society General President, “‘Daughters in My Kingdom’: The History and Work of Relief Society,” General Conference, October 2010)

“My mission had a great impact on my life. I learned to rely more on the Lord, to seek the guidance of the Spirit, and to feel an overwhelming love for God’s children. My knowledge of the scriptures and my understanding of the doctrines increased. So did my desire to be obedient and to keep the commandments with exactness. My testimony of the Savior and His infinite Atonement was strengthened. My missionary experiences became part of who and what I am. Missionary work became my passion. It has impacted my life and that of my family more than anything else.” (Silvia H. Allred, Relief Society General Presidency, “Go Ye Therefore,” General Conference, October 2008)

“Missionary work is the lifeblood of the Church. There is no greater work, no more important work. It blesses the lives of all those who participate in it. It will continue blessing future generations.” (Silvia H. Allred, Relief Society General Presidency, “Go Ye Therefore,” General Conference, October 2008)

“Begin by being a good neighbor and a good friend. Set an example of righteousness and kindness. Let your smile radiate love, peace, and happiness. Live a gospel-centered life.” (Silvia H. Allred, Relief Society General Presidency, “Go Ye Therefore,” General Conference, October 2008)
