Why the Badge?
Elder & Sister Potter
in Indiana

We are often asked why we decided to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My wife and I both served missions when we were young, and we have always wanted to serve a mission together. We are now serving in the Indiana Indianapolis Mission. Sister Potter is the mission

nurse and I am the office secretary. We are excited to have the opportunity to support the Lord's Youth Battalion here in Indiana. President Russell M. Nelson has suggested that there is nothing more important for the youth today than to be able to participate in what he called the Lord’s Youth Battalion (Hope of Israel).

As a young missionary I served in the Alaska British Columbia Mission and my wife served in the Bolivia Mission. She served as a nurse during her time in Bolivia. Her time was spent teaching the people of Bolivia good health and sanitation practices and even taught first aid to the Bolivian army. I was a regular missionary and spent my time teaching everyone that wanted to listen about the restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and that we have prophets on the earth today.

Salt Lake Temple
The Gospel of Jesus Christ is one of the greatest blessings we have in our lives. Because of our Savior we have the opportunity to overcome our natural selfish tendencies and become born again. Through the temple ordinances we have the blessing of being sealed for time AND all eternity, not just in this life.

We love knowing we have living prophets to guide us today and are excited to have the blessing of listening to the prophet and Apostles speak to us next weekend in general conference.

If you want to know what the Lord would like you to do, come and listen to General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on October 6-7 by going here: (General Conference)
