For Younger Missionaries

CONSIDER AS YOU READ

  • When you consider the promises made at baptism (as articulated by Alma), is there anyone who you should ignore in your missionary efforts? Does it matter where you find them?
  • Is there a place like the land of Mormon (where Alma taught all who would listen) where we can share the gospel with those with whom we work?

THE POWER OF EVERYDAY MISSIONARIES
Share the Truth at Work in a Proud and Confident Way

Because work is a place where we can most readily meet people and engage in conversations about the gospel, Satan is very committed to stop this from happening. This might be the biggest battle we have with Satan.

Over the years, we have found the following to be true:

  • There are many people at work who believe in God and are anxious to talk about Him. In many cases after we talked about God, people came forward expressing gratitude for us having done so. They said they felt liberated to speak of Him as well.
  • Explaining what we believe is not the only way to boldly and directly share the gospel. We can use the gospel to develop solutions to problems and challenges at work. Our associates can feel the Spirit of God as they see gospel principles applied to situations they encounter every day.
  • Because the truth works, there is no reason why we ever need to feel timid in using it, nor in mentioning where we learned it and have practice using it.
  • Just as we use Mormon words in everyday conversation, we can and should describe gospel principles in the same matter-of-fact tone of voice with which we might draw upon an article in the Wall Street Journal or Science

QUESTIONS FOR YOUNGER MISSIONARIES

  • What did Alma do to prepare himself just before he taught the people?
  • Can you think of how many people would not have received the gospel if just one man (Alma) had decided it was too dangerous to teach?
