Duty to God under way: Young men already realizing blessings

In a few days, Brother Rhead Kelly will introduce himself to his new seminary students from Utah's Murray High School. Counted among the hundreds of teens in his classes will be many young men just a year away from full-time missionary service in all corners of the globe. Those future elders will be anxious to teach the gospel and share their testimonies — but will they know how and what to share?

Brother Kelly, who also serves as the stake Young Men president in the Layton Utah West Stake, believes the revised Duty to God program can help answer that question. The program and its "learn, act and share" pattern, he said, "will enhance a young man's ability to learn doctrine, to act on these things and to be able to testify with power."

The new Duty to God program is in its maiden days. Many wards and branches throughout the United States and Canada just recently passed out the program booklets to Aaronic Priesthood holders and began implementing their programs in their own quorums. Soon the program will be available in non-English speaking units across the world, and youth leaders are equally anxious for young men in places such as Mexico or South Africa to learn, act and report on their duty to the Lord.
