A spiritual experience I had was during studies learning about the youth of the church. There are millions of talks and discourses about the "Hope of Israel" is in the hands of the youth. All of the kids from 12 to 18 years old should and need to realize how to listen, hear, and follow the whisperings of the Holy Spirit. He is the way our Heavenly Father talks with us and helps us guide our lives according to His will. 

And now, I would like to say a little on how you can do this, it is NOT easy. It is a work of a lifetime, but you NEED to know how to establish habits to be in tune with the Spirit. I will tell you how to do it, and all of you will say, "Elder Lee, that's just a primary answer." Then I ask, "Why aren't you doing it?" You all know the answers. 

I will give you one more answer that all of the women in the church are striving to do and I see them being examples to the faithful, as they should and are taught. Now young men, you have the same resources that they have. They have Personal Progress that helps them with many spiritual habits and studies. How are your studies young men? Are you just going through the motions and reading your 1 verse per day? You have something equivalent to the Young Women's Personal Progress, which is called Duty to God. Do you know your Duty to God? Do you know that the presidents of the quorums have keys to the priesthood? Do you know you can be ministered by the angels of God.? If not, read the last talk from President Monson. 

I am looking at the world in a different perspective here on a mission and as a missionary. There is nothing better to prepare to serve a mission or enter the Temple of God than the Young Women's Personal Progress and the Young Men's Duty to God. I love you all. These things were inspired by prophets, let's use them to our advantage. Read the Hymn "Hope of Israel." Who does it talk about? "Oh be wise, What can I say more?"

Com muito Amor,
