Scripture: This lesson based on Doctrine and Covenants 4
God said to Joseph Smith in the Doctrine and Covenants that missionary work is a marvellous work. He also says that people are waiting to hear the word of God. We can all be missionaries by sharing the gospel with our friends. When we are 19 (or 21 for girls) we can serve missions for the church and be missionaries for 2 years. God says he loves those who are his missionaries. His missionaries need faith, hope, charity and love. WE can try to have these things in our lives to prepare us to be missionaries.
