You do a lot of things you don’t think you will ever do on your mission. This may happen through community service projects, in lessons with children or in the wards where you will serve....
I get excited each time I think about my mission and how many impressions that came to me were the result of daily scripture study and prayer.
Once, my companion and I had just left the church building. We were in a large city, and we often passed by many crowds of people. In spite of the crowds, I got the impression to go back and talk to a man that I had seen on the way.
We returned and talked with him, and we found out that he had been baptized many years ago, but had not attended church for many years. We invited him to church. When he came he was fellowshipped by many of our members. Miraculously, we saw him and his family return to church.
The mission is such a blessing because it helps one to establish a pattern of daily scripture study and prayer which helps one to recognize small impressions of the spirit.
