It is very interesting to learn about the lives of missionaries. It can be exciting to share in their needs, joys, and sorrows. They are truly living out the command, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost,” —Matthew 28:19.
As we learn about these things, it should aid us in examining our own lives. Sometimes, we will be encouraged to do more for God. After all, this command applies to all of us. Perhaps we will never travel overseas, but we all have mission fields right in our own neighborhoods. We can certainly help support those who go into foreign lands while we try to be good missionaries for our Lord Jesus Christ right where we are.

This is our first year actively utilizing the Keepers of the Faith Curriculum. We are doing the girls and boys in our church home school group. One of the greatest things for us is that we were able to incorporate other church members in the teaching of the curricula. For instance, one of our elder ladies is teaching the hand sewing, our pastor's wife is teaching sign language, a Spanish member is teaching the foreign language, etc. It exposes our children to a variety of leaders within our church, new interests, and utilizes talents of others.
