I know that Jesus Christ lived on Earth. I know that He died on the cross at Calvary. I know that He is the Redeemer of the world. He lived a perfect life on earth. He lives and loves me. He knows me personally and He is always there for me. I trust the Holy Ghost and I try to follow the Holy Ghost’s promptings in my daily life. I know that the gospel is true and I cannot deny it. I know that The Book of Mormon, The Bible, The Doctrine and Covenants and The Pearl of Great Price are all true and real doctrines of the Lord. I know that the prophets throughout the ages are all true. They are all telling us the things that we need to know. I know Joseph Smith saw the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost has testified it unto me. I know that Thomas S. Monson is our true and living prophet on the earth. I know that Jesus suffered in the Garden of Gethsemane and took up on himself the sins of the world and knows how we all feel in our daily lives and He will always be there for us.
These things I testify and I promise that serving a mission will bring great blessings and rewards to each missionary, to their family members and to those among whom they serve. I am grateful for each of you who have helped me to prepare to serve the Lord. I am grateful for my family and friends who have come today and for all of your love and support. I know that serving the Lord is the thing I need to be doing in my life right now. I am excited to go. I know it will be challenging, but rewarding. I leave my testimony with you, in the sacred and holy name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
