I Want to be a Missionary

There was a time called the pre-existence where we lived with out Heavenly Father. We all danced, played, and sang together, and everything was beautiful and peaceful. Then Father had a beautiful world created in which we could live for a time. A great council was calle d and plans were made, accepted, and rejected to help us during outr stay on Earth. But there were those who weren't happy with the plans that were accepted and they were rebellious against the Father and were cast out. Thus, good and evil, love and hate, unity and division were born. Father decided that it was good to refine his children and try them to test their purity and quality, and he permitted the evil, rebel spirits to exist in the forms of temptations and other wordly things. Then Father started sending his obedient children to the Earth to live.

I was there in the pre-existence and saw it all happen. I had many, many close friends and one very, very dear friend whith whom I sang and played most often. Then one day, Father Called me and Said"___(Add Your Name)___, come here please and your friend also." I advanced with my friend by my side and Father said"___(Add Your Name) __, there's a package for you over there under that tree, go open it and see what it is. " He look at my friend and told him, pointing to the other tree, that there was a package there for him too. We ran to the trees as fast as we could. I found my package and eagerly ripped it open. Ther inside was a box and inside the box was a letter. I was overcome with joy when i discovered it was my call to go to Earth and that I was to be a member of a LDS family, people who knew the gospel of Jesus Christ and understood it. I ran to tell the glorious news to my friend. Upon reaching him, I blurted out the wonderful message I'd found in my package. Then i noticed something-he was crying and sad.

He stood and with tearful eyes and a sad heart, told me that he too had recevied his call to go to Earth, but that he was not going to a LDS family; he was not going to a family that kenw the true gospel of Jesus Christ. As the time came to leave for Earth, he lovingly put his arm around my shoulder and with a pleading voice said to me "____(Add Your Name)__, no matter where you are, no matter what you're doing, no matter where I am, no matter what I'm doing on Earth,  please find me. Please teach me the gosple of Jesus Christ and show me the pathway that leads back here to the presence of our Heavenly Father." I look him in the eyes , put my arm around his shoulder and said," I will, my friend, my brother (sister)." Father saw and heard, and was pleased.

Then we came to Earth.
