- These are the times where we grow.
- You will be eternally grateful for the relationship you develop with God during your missions.
- Repentance is more rewarding than making New Years resolutions.
- Repentance is a process of learning and of eternal change.

- Turning away from evil doesn’t bring healing unless we turn to Christ.
- The atonement is what makes repentance so beautiful, helpful and miraculous.
