It s never too young to prepare! This charmingly illustrated picture book teaches children what it's like to be a missionary, from riding a bike to studying the gospel to having a companion, and everything they can do now to be ready so that when the time comes, they ll be the best missionaries they can be. Colorful and cute, it's a perfect gift for baptisms and birthdays.
I Hope They Call Me on A Mission by Benjamin Hyrum White is the perfect way to prepare your young ones to serve a full-time mission. With colorful, amazing illustrations it asks at the bottom of each page “What Can You Do Now? ” There are realistic small bite sized goals and examples of ways each child can get ready now for the days ahead as a missionary. We loved this book and the principles taught…you will get rejected, it’s important to serve, you can practice now for a companion by getting along with others. We also found out “sometimes you have to eat strange foods.” As a family we all give it thumbs up. Go now and get this book!
