4. I will prepare now to become a missionary
(1 Timothy 4:12; David A. Bednar, “Becoming a
Missionary,” Ensign, Nov. 2005, 44– 47; “Basic
Requirements” in “Faith in God Award Requirements,”
Faith in God guidebooks, 4–5).
Write selected principles from “My Gospel
Standards” on separate pieces of paper. Divide the
children into groups and have each group select a
paper. Have each group hold a buzz session about
how living that standard will help them prepare
to become a missionary (see “Buzz Sessions,”
TNGC, 161). Invite each group to share what they
learned. Testify that by living worthily now, we
help build the kingdom of God. Sing “I Hope
They Call Me on a Mission” (CS, 169).
