As a missionary, my favorite part of the day was the hour I had in the morning to do personal study. During those 18 months, I read many inspiring talks and messages from apostles and prophets, but the following five are still my favorites.
When a missionary comes home after a long and hard day, they can read this and realize the love the Savior has for them as a missionary. This talk is what got me through the hard times. It saved me! I recommend that every missionary have a hard copy of this.
“I am convinced that missionary work is not easy because salvation is not a cheap experience. Salvation never was easy. We are The Church of Jesus Christ, this is the truth, and He is our Great Eternal Head. How could we believe it would be easy for us when it was never, ever easy for Him? It seems to me that missionaries and mission leaders have to spend at least a few moments in Gethsemane. Missionaries and mission leaders have to take at least a step or two toward the summit of Calvary.”
This talk focuses on how a missionary can change from being ordinary to extraordinary by making small improvements and becoming consecrated to our Father in Heaven.
