It’s one of the first things every missionary goes through after returning from their honorable service to the Lord. You’ve barely gotten off the plane and hugged your family members for the first time in years when you receive a call from the bishop asking you to speak on Sunday about your missionary experience. Which at this point probably doesn’t seem like as big of a deal as it would have been before your mission.
But how do you sum up the incredible lessons you learned from your missionary service? What can you do to share experiences that will be inspiring and spiritually uplifting to your ward members? Here are a few tips for giving a powerful homecoming talk.
1. Don't forget your topic. It can be tempting to turn your homecoming talk into a travelogue and just share some of your favorite stories from your mission.
2. Share your experiences! Everyone is eager to hear your personal experiences from your missionary service.
