“My friend doesn’t want to hear anything about the gospel. How can I still be a good missionary?” New Era, April 2008, 41
The line between being a bold missionary and a pushy friend can be hard to balance, but there are definitely things you can do to share the gospel. First of all, don’t underestimate the value of being a good example. In addition, make the gospel a part of your everyday conversation. If he asks how your weekend was, don’t skip over your Sunday meetings. Tell him about your great lesson or what they announced for your Mutual activity. When he asks you what your goals are, tell him you want to serve a mission and be a father or mother.
He may eventually have further questions, so be prepared. If he has more questions than you can answer, ask him to go to www.mormon.org, or invite him to your house to visit with the missionaries. But be patient. When the time is right, you can invite him to church, youth activities, or family home evening. You can also share a copy of the Book of Mormon with him and perhaps point out your favorite scripture. Then follow up to see what he thought.
