Matt: Digger, when I turn 19, I’m going on a mission. I’ll be gone two whole years.

Matt: I’ll miss you too! But I want to tell people about Heavenly Father and Jesus. I want them to know that their families can be together forever.

Matt: No, I won’t forget you. I’ll write every week and tell you about the people I’m teaching.

Matt: No, sorry. I can’t take you with me. You’d be a great missionary, though.

Matt: You can help me be a missionary right now! There’s a boy in my class who loves dogs.
