October 2008 General Conference: Go Ye Therefore

Sister Sylvia Allred teaches about how to be prepared for missionary work:

* If you have children at home, help prepare them for missionary service.
* Prepare yourself for missionary service.
* Invite family and friends to listen to the missionaries or to attend our Church meetings and activities.
* Accompany the missionaries to investigators’ homes, or invite the missionaries to teach nonmembers in your home.
* Invite people to a family home evening in your home.
* Invite people to a family history center, or help them do family history research.
* Give referrals to the missionaries. Members can be the greatest and best source of referrals.
* Share your beliefs and testimony with nonmember friends and family.
* Seek for opportunities to reach out to others.
* Extend friendship to investigators and new converts.
* Give your best efforts to finding those who are seeking the truth.
* If you have family members or friends on missions, send them letters of love and encouragement, and pray for them.

We can all participate in missionary work. This is the Lord’s work, and He will help us do it. His gospel has to go to every nation, and we can be instruments in His hands to bless the lives of others by sharing with them His truth. We will be greatly blessed in the process.
