Elder and Sister Cecil O. Samuelson, Emeritus General Authority

Tuesday devotional,  July 24, 2018

1/ Sister Samuelson

  • We love missionaries. 
  • We are celebrating Pioneer Day today.  Our ancestors were pioneers. You are blessed every day by the decisions of your pioneer ancestors. 
  • Your letters sent home will bless and build your families.
  • Your mission will bless you.

2/ Elder Samuelson

  • You are under covenant to serve.  You are an important part of this great army.  You are the best organized and prepared missionaries ever to serve.
  • You need to be pioneers of righteousness.  
  • Don’t fall into the trap of trying to be “perfect”.  Just don’t repeat your errors.
  • To obey is better than sacrifice.
  • President Gordon B. Hinckley talked about Paul and Timothy.  Read 1 Timothy 4:16. Take heed of the doctrine.
  • Know 1 Timothy 4:12 and Doctrine and Covenants 11:21.  Section 11 is about OBEDIENCE!
  • You are the lifeblood of the next generation.  You will be safer on your mission than those who stay at home and don’t serve.
  • Have at least one convert on your mission – YOU!
