Missionary work! How do we serve God with all our “heart, might, mind and strength”? We have great desires for missionary work, but sometimes we get skittish when we have the opportunity to take part in it. Let’s go through examples in church history that can help inspire us. Patricia Auxier-Doxey is with us.
Alma 17-22—Classic stories of the sons of Mosiah’s missionary efforts among the Lamanites, including Ammon and Lamoni, Aaron and Lamoni’s dad, and other stuff. But how did they go about this work? With a rubric? With a checklist? No. They did it through service and love. There are powerful lessons to take home from this discussion if we get past surface-level stuff. Cameron Poulter is with us.
Alma 8-12—Alma visits the people of Ammonihah to mixed results, but he meets Amulek, a pivotal actor throughout the Book of Alma. Why is it important to have more than one witness? Amulek and Alma tag-team the people and make it rain. Amulek contends with Zeezrom. Cameron Poulter is with us.
Jonah & Micah – We delve into a fascinating discussion not just on missionary work, but on the desire to serve, on humbling ourselves, and on abandoning our prejudices. There’s a ton to learn from Jonah – way more than the usual lesson you might get. Listen in and share your thoughts!
What a lesson! Dustin Homer shows up and blows our mind with tips on how to improve as member missionaries. How can we be better at missionary work? What are your experiences? And how do we retain and fellowship new members?
Settling the Mountain West – The Salt Lake Temple took 40 years to build. What lessons do we learn from the difficulty faced in its construction? Why is a foundation so important that it was built twice? How can we turn our hearts toward the temple? Why were saints sent to colonize areas instead of grouping together? We also discuss missionary work. Dustin Homer is with us.
We break down the Lord’s promises regarding missionary work. How can we strengthen our resolve to be member missionaries? How can missionary work be more effective? The Doctrine and Covenants teaches us a ton about this issue. Patricia Auxier joins us.
3 Nephi 16, 20, and 21 – What is the house of Israel and why was it scattered? Who are the gentiles? Why did Christ teach the Nephites about the gathering of Israel? What does that have to do with us in our day? How can we help gather Israel?
Alma 40-42 – Alma teaches Corianton about death and the resurrection. How often do we fail to remember Christ’s role in the Plan of Salvation? How does teaching someone, like Corianton, these principles improve his or her chances of being stronger and more valiant.?
Alma 17-22 – The sons of Mosiah preach the gospel to the Lamanites. Ammon teaches Lamoni, who is converted along with his people. Aaron is brought out of prison and teaches Lamoni’s father. How can we be more effective missionaries? Can we forsake all sin to know God? Where do we find the strength to be obedient?
