In the January 2011 issue of the Ensign President Monson told all the young men it was a priesthood duty to fulfill a mission and the young ladies could also if they chose to do so. Elder Crawford decided we would promote this in the Sydney Australia Mission by having all the missionaries present to all the youth and older primary children President Monson's challenge to prepare to serve a mission. Each youth is to sign a pledge card and accept the challenge and follow 3 steps in preparing which are #1 Keep myself clean and pure and worthy to represent the Lord; #2 Maintain my health and strength and #3 Pray and study the scriptures. President Monson has also encouraged and thanked us for this program!
