Missionary Invitation: Read a Conference talk this week that is on a topic that has been on your mind lately. If you don't have one, then with prayer, select one, and then read it. :) How wonderful it is that we have the opportunity to hear from a Prophet of God! Let's prepare ourselves adequately to hear our Father's glorious direction for these, our times!:)
