Keys to Success
Be A Light
Capture the Vision
I feel the Lord has placed, in a
very natural way within our circles of
friends and acquaintances, many persons
who are ready to enter into his Church. We ask that you prayerfully identify those persons and then ask the Lord’s assistance in helping you introduce them to the gospel.
- Spencer W. Kimball
Know Your Testimony
Understand your Role
Share the gospel online using social media
Wishing will not make it so. The Lord expects our thinking. He expects our action.
He expects our labors.
He expects our testimonies. He expects our devotion.
Be Full of Grace
-Thomas S. Monson
Everyone wants to be happy. When we members of the Church radiate the light of the gospel, people can see our happiness and sense the love of God filling and overflowing in our lives. They want to know why. They want to understand our secret.
That leads them to ask questions such as “Why are you so happy?” or “Why do you always have such a positive attitude?” The answers to these questions, of course, lead perfectly into a conversation about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.
Unfortunately, it is so easy to be disagreeable. It happens too often that we argue, belittle, and condemn. When we become angry, rude, or hurtful with people, the last thing they want is to learn more about us.
Shouldn’t we, the hopeful disciples of our gentle Christ, have a higher, more charitable standard? The scriptures teach, “Let your speech be alway[s] with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man” (Colossians 4:6).

I am not asking you to pretend to faith you do not have. I am asking you to be true to the faith you do have. Sometimes we act as if an honest declaration of doubt is a higher manifestation of moral courage than is an honest declaration of faith. It is not!
- Jeffery R. Holland
Now is the time for
members and missionaries to come together, to work together, to labor in the Lord’s vineyard to bring souls unto Him.

This is the world of the future, with inventions undreamed of that will come in your lifetime... How will you use these marvelous inventions? More to the point, how will you use them to further the work of the Lord?
-M. Russell Ballard
There is an enthusiasm, an excitement, a zeal right now that is unlike anything I know of in recent years... This is the generation when the work will not fail. This is the dispensation that will receive the Son of God.

Hastening the Work of Salvation
Get to know them and their investigators
Let them know your availability
Introduce them to your friends
Pray for them
Bringing up the subject of religion can seem daunting and challenging. It doesn’t have to be. Mentioning spiritual experiences or talking about Church activities or events in casual conversation can be easy and pleasant if we invest a little courage and common sense.
With the advent of the Internet and social media, it is easier today to talk about these things in a conversational way than ever before. What we need is simply the courage to do so.
Brothers and sisters, have faith. The Lord can magnify the words you speak and make them mighty. God doesn’t ask you to convert but rather to open your mouths. The task of converting is not yours—that belongs to the person hearing and to the Holy Spirit.
Its time to

"An unprecedented wave of enthusiasm for missionary work is sweeping the entire earth…. CATCH THE WAVE.”
- Russell M. Nelson
The spirit of this work is urgency, and we must move more rapidly. We must take things up a notch.
It’s time to hasten the work of salvation
Whatever our age, capacity...calling, or location, we are as one called to the work to help Him in His harvest of souls. So will you answer the call?
