Taylors letter he wrote for our Stakes Mission Prep class

 Going on a mission was the best decision that I have made so far.   At first I was going on a mission just because I was supposed to and it was the thing to do but as the time went on I realized that it was something God wanted me to do and I wanted to please him.   I won’t tell you the mission is easy because it definitely is not but I know that this work is God’s work.   Even though it is not easy and is sometimes disappointing, the parts that make it worth it are experiences that you will have, whether it be finding the golden family, seeing a family totally change or just making friends.  I can tell you that looking back so far on my mission I can’t really remember the sad and disappointing times even though I have had many all I can remember are the good, happy & life changing moments that the mission gives you.   I know there are some young men who think that the mission is not for them, this is false!   If you don't go on a mission you are choosing not to receive god’s blessings.  You have to decide if god’s blessings are worth it to you and your family.   I can tell you they are and you will not regret it if you go on a mission but if you don’t go you will have a life full of regret!!  God knows where you are to serve and where you are to teach.  He is preparing people just for you that maybe only could change, don’t let them loose the blessings because you decided not to go!!! I know that god loves each of us and the best way to show him that we love him is through our works and he has asked us to make this sacrifice and serve a mission it may be a hard thing to do but remember it’s not your parents or even your bishop that has asked you to serve but it is a commandment from God.   I know this church is true I know that joseph smith was a prophet of god I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Christ and that it can change lives.  I know this gospel blesses families because I have seen it I have seen the many blessing that this gospel brings to peoples life!  in   D&C 18: 15-16 it reads  15. And if it so be that you should labor all your days in crying repentance unto this people, and bring, save it be one  soul unto me, how great shall be your joy with him in the kingdom of my Father!
 16. And now, if your joy will be great with one soul that you   have brought unto me into the kingdom of my Father, how   great will be your joy if you should bring many souls unto me!
Even if you only baptize one person it will be worth it, your joy will be great.  I know that every soul in the sight of god is great and we have to do our best to bring them to Christ! Think about your mission pray about it and I know that you and your family and many other lives will be blessed as you serve your mission.
