Goodbye to our missionary son
Doctrine and Covenants 75: 2-5, 10-11, 16- "Hearken, O ye who have given your names to go forth to proclaim my gospel, and to prune my vineyard. Behold, I say unto you that it is my will that you should go forth and not tarry, neither be idle but labor with your might-- Lifting up your voices as with the sound of a trump, proclaiming the truth according to the revelations and commandments which I have given you. And thus, if ye are faithful ye shall be laden with many sheaves, and crowned with honor, and glory, and immortality, and eternal life... Calling on the name of the Lord for the Comforter, which shall teach them all things that are expedient for them---praying always that they faint not; and inasmuch as they do this, I will be with them even unto the end. .. And he who is faithful shall overcome all things, and shall be lifted up at the last day."
