What YOU Must Do to Receive the Promised Blessings

What You Must Do

“I want to challenge you to keep the faith. Don't say, `That chapter in my life is behind me.' Stay on a mission for the rest of your days. Have the spirit with you for the rest of your days. Continue to study, to read the scriptures. Continue to work, to serve the Lord. Continue to keep the commandments and live as you ought to live. Be good fathers, good mothers, good husbands, good wives, good people in the community. Get all the education you can get and do it with study and faith. Hold true to the Iron Rod throughout your days. Nearly every returned missionary does but, unfortunately, there's one here and another there who drifts away. I want to give you the challenge to be faithful to this cause and kingdom of God our Eternal Father and the risen Lord Jesus Christ as long as you live, and fill every responsibility that you are asked to fill. I don't hesitate to promise you in the name of the Lord that if you do so your lives will be fruitful and happy, and the Lord will open the windows of heaven and pour down blessings upon you.”
