My Misson Experience

My mission has been a great experience.  The Lord has done so much for me!  My Savior, through the power of His Atoneing sacrifice, has literally changed my life.  I owe everything to Him who did what I could not do for myself!  I love Him.  I know I still have a lot I need to do, but I know through Christ it is possible.  It is possible to return to live with my Father in Heaven after this life is over.  I thank my Savior!

I feel like Ammon who said, "Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever."(Alma 26: 12).

I will forever remember this mission experience! 

I love these verses of scripture in Mosiah 2: 20-24,

20 I say unto you, my brethren, that if you should render all the thanks and praise which your whole soul has power to possess, to that God who has created you, and has kept and preserved you, and has caused that ye should rejoice, and has granted that ye should live in peace one with another—
21 I say unto you that if ye should serve him who has created you from the beginning, and is preserving you from day to day, by lending you breath, that ye may live and move and do according to your own will, and even supporting you from one moment to another—I say, if ye should serve him with all your whole souls yet ye would be unprofitable servants.
22 And behold, all that he requires of you is to keep his commandments; and he has promised you that if ye would keep his commandments ye should prosper in the land; and he never doth vary from that which he hath said; therefore, if ye do keep his commandments he doth bless you and prosper you.
23 And now, in the first place, he hath created you, and granted unto you your lives, for which ye are indebted unto him.
24 And secondly, he doth require that ye should do as he hath commanded you; for which if ye do, he doth immediately bless you; and therefore he hath paid you. And ye are still indebted unto him, and are, and will be, forever and ever; therefore, of what have ye to boast?

My Savior has done so much for me.  He has helped me and taught me so much!  I am thankful I came on a mission.  I know that this great work is true.  I know that God called Joseph Smith to be a prophet, and through him the exact same church Christ established was restored again to the earth.  This is Christ's church.  A living prophet is on the earth today!  I know this is true.

  1. Congrats on reaching this landmark of life Elder Moore. You set a great example of serving the Lord and giving your all to the work. You should be well pleased with your efforts; you changed the lives of many and helped many find joy and happiness. There is nothing greater nor sweeter than that.
