Historic Mission Event May 21, 2015

Missionaries carry several teaching tools in their everyday lives.  They of course have scriptures which are one of the best tools for teaching.  They have pamphlets, and other wonderful materials provided.  But this week our missionaries all received a long awaited tool an I-pad which is a device that will be a blessing for their work if used wisely.  Brother Tracy Watson and Chris Randal came from the Missionary Department  in Salt Lake City, Utah to help us train our mission.  They were powerful teachers.  We had over 200 missionaries together for the afternoon in Cranberry, PA.   To use this tool in the best way to hasten the Lord's work requires missionaries who are focused on the Savior and His purpose for them.  Their hearts must be pure.  Continually seeking the Holy Ghost will strengthen their ability to be safe.  Replacing old habits with good habits for use of these devices will bless them for the rest of their lives!

"The greatest protection and filter when working on-line is your heart and mind.  In D&C 112:28 the Lord instructs:  but purify your hearts before me; and then go ye unto all the world; and preach my gospel unto every creature."

Elder Nelson Perspective (view of an apostle)
    Mobile devices are but tools to facilitate the Lord's work.  They are neither the focus of nor the reason for the hastening.  Like a magnifying glass, they enhance our focus in fulfilling the Lord 's work at this time."
