"Remembering always to act with courtesy and propriety, we have a responsibility to be witnesses of Jesus Christ, 'at all times and in all things and in all places,' to proclaim each in our own way the great cause of which Christ has called us."

You are already wonderful missionaries, better than you think you are, and there is more where that comes from.

"The 12-hour-a-day, heavy-duty effort we can leave to the full-time missionaries, but why should they have all the fun? We are entitled to a seat at the abundant table of testimony as well, and fortunately a place has been reserved there for each member of the church."

People who investigate the church come from many different sources, but those who are actually baptized and who are firmly retained in church activity come overwhelmingly from friends and acquaintances known to members of the church.

President Hinckley has invited all of us to become a vast army with enthusiasm for missionary work and to assist the missionaries in carrying the gospel to every nation, kindred, tongue and people.

"Above all else, we can live the gospel. Surely there is no more powerful missionary message we can send to the world than the example of a loving and happy Latter-day Saint life."

People do not join the church because of what they know. They join because of what they feel.
