Dear Family and Friends of the Florida Orlando Mission,
Now is the moment in the timetable of the Lord to carry the gospel farther than it has ever been carried before. Many a person in this world is crying, knowingly and unknowingly, ‘Come over….and help us.’ He might be your neighbor, she might be your friend, he might be a relative, she might be someone you met only yesterday. We have what they need, let us take courage from our studies and pray, as did Peter, ‘And now, Lord,….grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word.’ (Acts 4:29) We must share the gospel with others. That is our responsibility – every member a missionary. Member missionary work is one of the great keys to the individual growth of our members. President Joseph Smith stated, “Let the Saints remember that great things depend on their individual exertion, and that they are called to be co-workers with us and the Holy Spirit in accomplishing this great work.” Our challenge to each of you as friends and family is to step outside your comfort zone and to speak with everyone you met, share the gospel, be bold, help lift them to a higher ground and a better way, you can change their lives and the lives of their families for eternity. Every member a Missionary!
We appreciate your love, support and prayers for each of us and the missionaries around the world, may God continue to bless each of you and your families.
President and Sister Berry
