We are all spirit children of a loving Heavenly Father. He sent us to earth with different abilities and talents. With these abilities, each of us can give meaningful service to help build the kingdom of God on the earth. The Lord said, “If ye have desires to serve God ye are called to the work” (Doctrine and Covenants 4:3
). Everyone who is worthy and has a desire to serve may have the opportunity to be called as a missionary.
Do you want to serve the Church, your community, and your family? Do you want to have valuable spiritual experiences as a missionary? You may be called to a custom-tailored service mission! Service missionaries are called by the Lord to serve in assignments at Church operations, at approved nonprofit community organizations, and within their stake.
Wherever you go and however you serve, you will be greatly blessed. As a service missionary, you:
- Follow the example of Jesus Christ.
- Give meaningful service.
- Study and pray.
- Build life skills.
- Help fulfill the Church’s divinely appointed responsibilities
