“We Can Spread the Light of the Gospel,” Liahona, April 2020
Young adulthood is a time for growth, opportunities, and a chance to begin building your life. And that can be overwhelming, exciting, and scary all at the same time (it definitely has been for us).
But while we may not know the answers to all of life’s most pressing questions, there is one thing we are completely certain of—that young adults have always been a crucial force in the ongoing Restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ.
In planning this month’s section, we spoke with many young adults about their participation in gathering Israel. And we have been so humbled by their sincere love for and dedication to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Regardless of their circumstances, these young Saints understand the vital role they have in this final dispensation. In “How Young Adults Are Making a Difference in the Ongoing Restoration” on page 44, you can read how young adults from India, Hungary, Barbados, Australia, and the United States are preparing the world for the Savior’s Second Coming.
In digital-only articles, Cezar gives insight on how we can find our purpose and become better leaders. Lauri talks about the blessings we receive when we follow the prophet’s counsel. Other young adults share their experiences with temple service, ministering, family history, and missionary work. And we share an example from a young adult in New Caledonia that illustrates how young members are doing the Lord’s work in smaller areas of the Church.
Wherever you are and whatever your circumstances may be, you can make more of a difference in the gathering of Israel than you might think. As young adults, we are the future leaders of this Church. And the spark of our efforts today will ignite and spread the light of the gospel throughout the world tomorrow.
