“First Presidency Message,” Preach My Gospel

First Presidency Message

Dear Fellow Missionary:

We congratulate you on the great opportunity you have to be a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. There is no more compelling or important work than the gathering of Israel.

Preach My Gospel is intended to help you be a better-prepared, more spiritually mature missionary. It is also intended to help you be a more effective teacher. We urge you to use it daily in your personal and companion study. We also encourage you to use it in your district council meetings and zone conferences. Study the referenced scriptures and learn the doctrine and principles.

We invite you to rise to a new sense of commitment to assist our Father in Heaven in His glorious work. Every missionary has an important role in helping the Lord in His work “to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man” (Moses 1:39).

The Lord will bless you as you humbly dedicate yourself to serving Him. May you find great joy and happiness as you labor among Heavenly Father’s children.

The First Presidency
