President Nelson to Youth: “This Is the Mission for Which You Were Sent to Earth.”

“My dear young brothers and sisters, you are among the best the Lord has ever sent to this world. You have the capacity to be smarter and wiser and have more impact on the world than any previous generation!”

—President Russell M. Nelson

President Nelson has invited the youth of the Church to be a part of the greatest cause and greatest work on earth—the literal gathering of Israel. This is why youth were sent to earth at this very moment, to fulfill their mission in helping all of God’s children receive the gospel of Jesus Christ on both sides of the veil. 

In his devotional address, he invited youth to do five things that will help them as they participate in the gathering of Israel.

  1. Hold a seven-day fast from social media.
  2. Make a weekly sacrifice of time to the Lord for three weeks.
  3. Keep on the covenant path. If you are off, repent and get back on the path.
  4. Pray daily that all of God’s children might receive the blessings of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
  5. Stand out. Be different. Be a light. Give to a friend one copy of the booklet For the Strength of Youth.
