March 2, 2015- "To the missionaries of the world"

I know your time is short, so here's a short thought that I had a short while ago in Zone Conference:

If a person knew the day they were going to die, what would he change? How much faster would he do all of his work? How much more frequently would he tell people he cares about them? What things would he do to prepare to meet God?

You and I, we know the day we are going to 'die' and go back home. It's on our Ecclesiastical Endorsement, signed by a prophet of the Lord. It doesn't matter whether you have over a year left or just a week, you know when the 'end' will come. Now what are you going to do about it? What are you going to do differently?

Elders, one week of your mission is almost exactly 1% of your mission. Sisters, every month is about 5%. Just bringing things into perspective. Now is the time to kick it into high gear and work all the harder. Keep up the good work.

~Elder Barker
