“Missionary Fireside Scheduled January 5,” Ensign, Dec. 1983, 67
Full-time missionaries, stake teaching missionaries, and friendshipping families throughout the United States and Canada are being invited to bring their investigators to a missionary fireside that will be broadcast the evening of 5 January 1984 to stake centers with satellite receiving antennas.
Elder Neal A. Maxwell of the Council of the Twelve will speak on “Our Acceptance of Christ,” which is the topic of the first discussion presented by missionaries to investigators.
The fireside is designed to let investigators, missionaries, and local priesthood leaders alike hear a General Authority testify to the truth of the precepts in that discussion, said Elder James M. Paramore of the First Quorum of the Seventy, who has responsibility for coordinating satellite programming for the Church. He said this fireside will be the first in a series of seven to be broadcast during the first few months of the year. Each fireside will cover concepts taught in one of the missionary discussions. It is anticipated that each fireside will feature an address by a member of the Council of the Twelve.
Elder Paramore said missionaries and local priesthood leaders may want to tape the fireside for reuse. Videotapes will also be available from the Salt Lake distribution center in February.
