I Hope They Call Me on a Mission

Be better prepared for tomorrow by learning these skills today.

Friend Magazine, 2014/02 Feb

Get moving!

Most missionaries spend their days praying, reading scriptures, walking, riding bicycles, talking to people, and teaching the gospel. It’s hard work! Just as it’s important to be spiritually ready to serve a mission, it’s also important to be physically ready to handle the work.

To be as healthy as you can be, your body needs to be active for an hour or more each day. Below are some examples of fun exercise. Talk with your parents and decide if you are getting enough activity. If you need to, set an exercise goal. (For more about setting goals, see “I Hope They Call Me on a Mission” in the January 2013 Friend.)
