My Talk Based on The Power of Preach My Gospel

Thanks to four people who are both of my Ward Missionaries, my younger sister Emma and my friend Emily Lane to help me with my talk.

"Good morning Brothers and Sisters. I have been given a talk based on The Power of Preach My Gospel. Most Sundays afternoons, I go to Mission Preparation. In Mission Prep, we recite the Missionary's purpose which is to “Invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end.” The contents then suggest how to achieve that purpose as led by the Spirit.

Preach My Gospel teaches us about wise time management, Christ Like Attributes, learning to recognise the promptings of the Holy Ghost and basic doctrines of principles of the gospel with lessons and discussions.

It's not only missionaries in the field that use Preach My Gospel, us as members can use it too as a useful tool and to prepare a habit of studying lesson structures before serving a mission. We can also understand the purpose of Preach My Gospel through reading the introduction.

Preach My Gospel applies to both members and missionaries. Applies to members by drawing closer to preach of Christ to nonmember friends and it will also helps the members to gain confidence in what they could say for situations that their nonmember friend could be going through. It applies to the Missionaries because they use it as a teaching tool." I shared my experience with that I had with the Missionaries and my Testimony. If you haven't read my experience with the Missionaries, it's under the blog post 1st Lesson with The Missionaries.

I received a few feedback from the members in my Ward; both of the Missionaries said "I really liked it. It was good." My Mum said "That was good, you led by the Spirit." A few other members mentions that they liked my talk. Although it was short; I am so grateful that I shared my talk. It was one week notice and it was worth of asking a lot for the Ward Missionaries for assistance.

I was going to video record me saying the talk when I get home and  it was very noisy for the background. What do you think?
