So by now you might be wondering, "this missionary is just begging to get himself sent home." Well that's what I keep thinking too! No worries though I'll still be sticking around.
The LDS Church's missionary department has asked some missionaries to create an online blog and facebook profile to assist in the great work of helping all to come unto Christ! The internet is an amazing blessing from our loving Father in Heaven and He is beginning to open our eyes to the great and wonderful tool this will be in helping our brothers and sisters find their way to the peace and joy that is found in the restored gospel.
The prophet Nephi in the Book of Mormon helps me to understand the importance of this way of preaching and teaching. He says, "For we labor diligently to write, to persuade our children, and also our brethren, to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God; for we know that it is by grace that we are saved, after all that we can do." (2 Nephi 25:23) All mankind need Jesus Christ. Plain and simple. Where would we be without His love, His example, and most importantly His atoning sacrifice for our salvation? The answer is we would be completely lost.
But we are not lost!! Our Savior lives, and we know this through His prophets. Where would we be without the writings and direction of the great prophets? Again, completely lost.
I am no prophet, but I will write diligently to persuade ALL, Mormon or not, to come unto their loving Savior. In His arms they will find an unlimited supply of warmth and love. They will be safe from every trick and sly temptation of the adversary. They will understand their identity and mission on earth. As a representitive of Jesus Christ, I promise you that your Father in Heaven wants you back, so make the choice that the Spirit teaches is right. Choose Christ.
