The Apostle Paul was a great missionary sent to the Gentiles.
Missionary work began again when the Lord’s Church was restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith.
The Gospel Will Be Preached to All the World Elder Russell M Nelson declared that the Lord is also “inspiring the minds of great people to create inventions that further the work of the Lord in ways never known. Newspapers, magazines, television, radio, satellites, computers, the Internet, and related technology help give the gospel message to millions of people. We who have the fulness of the gospel need to use these inventions to fulfill the Lord’s commandment: ‘For, verily, the sound must go forth from this place into all the world, and unto the uttermost parts of the earth—the gospel must be preached unto every [person]’(D&C 58:64).“
Missionary Work Is Important Pres. Ezra Taft Benson stated: “This is our first interest as a Church— to save and exalt the souls of the children of men.” As we teach the gospel to our brothers and sisters, we are preparing the way for the Second Coming of the Savior
We Should All Be Missionaries
The sons of Mosiah willingly accepted their responsibility to teach the gospel, “for they could not bear that any human soul should perish; yea, even the very thoughts that any soul should endure endless torment did cause them to quake and tremble” (Mosiah 28:3).
