Wilford Woodruff on Missionary Work

We have come to this earth upon a mission . . . that we may have power to go forth and warn the nations of the earth . . . As elders of Israel, very few of us fully comprehend our position, our calling, or relationship to God, our responsibility, our work the Lord requires at our hands.
Discourses of Wilford Woodruff, 124

Brigham Young on Missionary Work

There is neither man or woman in the Church who is not on a mission.  That mission will last as long as they live, and it is to do good, to promote righteousness, to teach the principles of truth, and to prevail upon themselves and everybody around them to live those principles that they may obtain eternal life.
Discourses of BY, 322

Covenants

 

Heber C. Kimball

When I went into the water [of] baptism I made [a] covenant I would forsake the world with all [that] pertains to it, and cleave unto the Lord God with all my heart all my days. This is the covenant that I made, to turn away from the world. That is the covenant you made, or the one you should have made. Now, will you fulfill it?” (Oct. 7, 1853).

Dec. Ensign, 57.

Book of Mormon Testimony

 

Parley P. Pratt

I will tell [you] my brethren, when I was a lad just out of my teens—about 1830—I read a book that was but little known in the world, although now, probably, it is in half [a] dozen [of the] principal languages of the earth, and it was entitled the Book of Mormon, and had many predictions in it that are plain and easy to be understood, and the spirit and power of God bore witness to my heart of their truth. … Well now, these prophecies interested me I assure you. They made an impression upon my mind [that] never has been effaced. … I knew in me [in a way] that [would have] been no stronger if I had seen Jesus Christ in his glorified body and heard [the] same words from his own lips” (Oct. 31, 1852).

Dec. Ensign, 57.
