Why Mormons send Missionaries around the World?
We have received a few questions about what a mission is and why we encourage people to serve missions. Please click on this link to read more about this and please watch the video in the link. Elder Chicas is ONE of 84,000 missionaries and we love him and are so happy he choose to do this.
-The blessings of the gospel are so precious that we try to share them with everyone we can.
-We believe we are all part of one heavenly family, so missionary work isn't work so much as it is trying to help out our brothers and sisters.
-You might wonder what, exactly, a Mormon missionary does, other than ride a bike and knock on doors, or how a young man or woman just out of high school might end up on a mission. Here are the basics.
-6.7 billion people live on the earth right now, but only 84,000 members are full-time missionaries. Mormons are invited to share the gospel with their friends so more people have the chance to learn about Jesus Christ in a personal, meaningful way.
-Mormons are known for the things they don't drink, their emphasis on the family and the Book of Mormon they read, but in the end the central message of our religion is our Heavenly Father’s plan of happiness for His children and the Atoning sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ.
