When I was younger I never fully knew what missionaries were or their purpose in voluntarily leaving their families

for two years was all about. Neither did I have much of an understanding of how the priesthood worked either. But as I've gotten a little older, and matured more into wanting to learn more of the gospels teachings on my own , I was able to finally receive the Aaronic Priesthood, and participate in teaching others as well. But to prepare ourselves to receive the priesthood and serve a mission we have to live to our potential, Look up to good examples, and have a strong relationship with our heavenly father. Some of the best ways to get prepared for this is by attending Scouts, and Going into the Young Mens program. Boy scouts of America is a great way for us to learn leadership and to respect each other. And young mens gives us a better knowledge of the gospel, teaches us to serve , and prepares us for our eternal companion. In high adventure, we were put into several tests to learn how to think things though and working together to achieve our goal,while also having a great time and experience. And on a mission, we'll do the same with our companion , as well what we'll do with our spouse. "The Aaronic Priesthood prepares boys for manhood and the weightier duties of the Melchizedek Priesthood. Scouting helps us to walk uprightly the priesthood path to exaltation." President Tomas S. Monson has told us that the time is now to participate in scouting . If ever there were a generation who would benefit by keeping physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight—that generation is the present generation” Scouting still to play a strong role in fulfilling the Aaronic Priesthood of preparing young men for full-time missions, temple blessings, and righteous living . As bearers of the priesthood, we should never become hardened to the wonder of what the Lord has entrusted to us. Not only does Scouts and young mens prepare us for a mission, but it also gets us prepared for the second coming. So we don’t have to be afraid when it comes to judgment day and know we've done the best we can. I bear you my testimony that if we keep following our leaders, and keep those teachings of scouting and young mens with us, we can be fully prepared and know without a doubt that we made it. That we can Serve a mission and be successful though our faith.

and priests become men of god. I hope that I can serve a mission when I'm older and get the chance to teach others to get the priesthood as well. The time is now to fulfill our potential. I'm so grateful that I could have the help of my leaders and that they would take their time to help us deacons. . our adversity can be weakened and we can keep away from the temptations of Satan .I know that if we keep the holy ghost with us at all times. . I leave this with you in the name of Jesus Christ amen. teachers.
