“How can I tell my friend about the Church?” New Era, Mar. 2007, 53

Missionary Preparation

“My best friend doesn’t want to know anything about the Church, but I want to tell him more. How can I do that without making him upset?”

First and foremost, love him for who he is. If he’s your best friend, then he probably won’t be upset if you share your deep feelings with him. Maybe the time isn’t right now, but he could come around in the future. Don’t give up on him, and remember to always be a good example.

When the time is right, you can invite him to Church meetings, youth activities, or family home evening. You can also share a copy of the Book of Mormon with him. If he has more questions than you can answer, ask him to look at, or invite him to your house to visit with the missionaries. There are many ways to tell him more about the gospel. You can ask your local full-time missionaries for more ideas, too.

Heavenly Father knows what you need to do about your friend. Pray and ask Him for guidance. (See 3 Nephi 14:7–8.)
