Even though you won’t serve a full-time mission until you are older, there are things you can do now to be a missionary. Here are some things children like you have done to share the gospel.
My brother and I are the only members of the Church in our school. As part of one class we talk about religions. I volunteered to do a presentation about our Church. The day of my presentation I said a prayer that I would do well and that the Spirit would be there. In my presentation I talked about the Book of Mormon, prayer, baptism, the Holy Ghost, the sacrament, temples, and our prophet. I really felt the Spirit during the presentation. It felt good to talk about our Church.

One time for a class project we each chose a person who made an impact on Arizona. Spencer W. Kimball was on the list. I knew he had been a prophet, so I chose him. I wrote a speech and dressed up like President Kimball. I presented my speech as students from the whole school came to my display. I am thankful for prophets and what they do.

On a Friend website survey we asked if you live in a place where it snows in the winter. There were 2,000 people who responded! What is your winter like? Draw a picture of something you like to do in the winter, whether or not it snows.
This month, write about some good friends. What are their names? How did you meet them? What do you like to do together? What are some things they are good at? Write about what you think makes a good friend.
“The right friends have a powerful influence on your life. Choose your friends wisely. Make certain they will help build within you the right standards with which to govern your life.”*
