Becoming a Lifelong Missionary

Elder David A. Bednar
     "Preach My Gospel missionaries understand that the responsibility to represent the Savior and to bear testimony of Him never ends. When the day arrives for an honorable release as a full-time missionary, you will depart from a field of labor and return to your family—but you will not cease being and becoming a missionary. A release as a full-time missionary is a call to serve as a lifelong missionary. And Preach My Gospel missionaries honor, always, this sacred obligation.

     "Please remember Him in all that you think, in all that you do, and in all that you strive to become, and represent Him appropriately to all of Heavenly Father’s children with whom you interact now and always." (MTC Devotional, June 24, 2011)
