Inspired by Words of the Prophets

So, this weekend we had conference, and some amazing things were said. 

Everything was truly inspired. Of that, I have no doubt. Of course, as a missionary, the things that stood out to me are pretty obvious. 

"Now is the time for members and missionaries to come together, to work together, to labor in the Lord's vineyard to bring souls unto Him."

That's what our Prophet said.

D&C 1:38-- "...my word shall not pass away, but shall all be fulfilled, whether by mine own voice or by the voice of my servants, it is the same."


Do you believe Thomas S. Monson to be the Lord's prophet, or don't you? Because that's really what it comes down to. The Lord's servant has spoken, and the work will go forth and there will be lives changed and hearts that will be softened, and there will be promptings from the Holy Ghost, of this I testify. 

But what will you do? 

You might be asking, "What in the world can I do?". And the thing is that you can do a lot

A WHOLE lot.

There was a promise made to us by another one of the Lord's servants. He promised that if every member reaches out to just 1 person, we as a church would gain millions of members. That's huge! Can you even imagine how many new stakes and wards would need to be formed? Can you wrap your mind around the lives that would be changed?

And that's just the work involving members in the next 3 months! (Yes, exclamation point.) Imagine if that was each member's goal for every month. 1 person per month. The Lord has made it very clear that the work is to be done with members AND missionaries if the hastening is going to work. My advice to you is to decide right now to set a member-missionary goal to reach before Christmas, and then: 
  • Pray with faith that the Lord will help you to make it happen. 
  • Allow yourself to follow the direction of the Spirit in everything that you do as you go about reaching the goal that you've set for yourself. 
  • Have pass-long cards ready to hand out.
  • Look for ways to love every single person that is around you. 
I know that the Lord will then bless you to reach your goal, as long as you are doing all that you can to heed this call to the work that has been issued to us all. It may seem impossible, but that's only because we can't see the big picture...the Lord does, and He has called every hand to the work. 

Don't let yours be one of those left behind.

"Forget yourself and go to work."
