In District and Zone Meetings this week, we learned about the importance of the basic principles of the gospel. We can never stop learning about the first principles: Faith, Repentance, Baptism, Gift of the Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the End. The more I learn about them, the more I realize the importance of missionary work. If we don't do these things, we cannot reach our highest potential. Missionary work is so important because it provides a way for people to return to live with Heavenly Father. There is no other way.
