Here are a variety of missionary quotes to make you smile and brighten your day.
Our young missionaries set aside their education, occupation, dating, and whatever else young adults would typically be doing at this stage of life. For 18 to 24 months they put it all on hold because of their deep desire to serve the Lord. And some of our missionaries serve in their more mature years of life. I know their families are blessed. In our own family, eight are currently serving as full-time missionaries—three daughters, their husbands, one granddaughter, and one grandson. (Russell M. Nelson)
“Brethren, the spirit of this work is urgency, and we must imbue … our Saints with the spirit of now. NOW. We are not justified in waiting for the natural, slow process of bringing people into the Church. We must move rather hastily.” (Spencer W. Kimball)
"The most effective missionaries, member and full-time, always act out of love. … If we lack this love for others, we should pray for it." (Dallin H. Oaks)
"Brethren, preserving and enhancing the spiritual strength you developed (or will yet develop) as a missionary or in other righteous service is your best asset in becoming a desirable husband and father." (Anthony D. Perkins of the Seventy)
"I believe there are important lessons we can learn from the process of trying to learn a language and the process of trying to learn the gospel." (Dilworth B. Parkinson of the Seventy)
