One of the basic missions of the church is to invite all people to come unto Christ. On Wednesday, my cousin Jackson is leaving on his mission to Arizona. We are going to his farewell later today to hear him speak. I am so proud of him for making the choice to go on a mission.
While my cousin is on his mission, he will be spending all of his time teaching people about Jesus Christ and about his gospel. I know that when we teach others about Jesus, Heavenly Father is happy and blesses us. I know that my whole family will be blessed because of Jackson's choice to spread the gospel to others.
You don't have to be a missionary to teach others about Jesus and to invite people to come unto Christ. We all have friends at school, neighbors, or relatives who don't yet know about all the blessings that come from following Jesus' example. We can tell them stories about Jesus that we have learned in Primary, invite them to church, or just be a good friend and example to them. I know that if we do this, we will be blessed.
I hope that we can all one day invite people to come unto Christ, whether we go on a mission, or just teach a good friend about the love Jesus has for all of us.
I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
