About the Book
Don’t just be prepared–be prepared well. Ben Bernards, popular youth speaker, presents this adventurous book of seven guiding rules and lessons to help train a new generation of missionaries. These invaluable lessons, from God’s measure of success to unexpected difficulties in the field, will apply to any missionary’s call, readying them for the great and challenging experiences of the Lord’s work..
About the Author
Ben Bernards grew up in a big Mormon family in a small farming town in the heart of Utah County where he and his eight brothers and sisters were raised on a steady diet of Nintendo, Transformers, Dungeons & Dragons, and Star Wars. He geeks out on all that plus everything marching band, Marvel, and Tolkien (his autographed edition of Lord of the Rings is pretty much the coolest.)
He loves teaching youth the Gospel of Jesus Christ, whether it be in Seminary, Sunday School, at youth conferences or EFY. He served a mission on the Fiji Islands where he survived cyclones, rampaging natives, and swarms of giant bats while living in a hut in the jungle. (He still hasn’t convinced his wife to go back and visit.)
What a well-written and inspirational book for missionaries. This book is fantastic for missionaries preparing to serve the Lord for eighteen months to two years, but it is also a good missionary tool for all of us striving to fulfill our “eternal mission.” Wilcox pulls readers in from page one by sharing personal experiences, as well as scriptural experiences. This is a book that will teach about hardships and how to keep going and be strong. I would recommend this book to teens preparing to go on a mission and to those who are struggling and want to gain inspiration to do and be better.
