Elder Rasband shares 9 truths found in the new bicentennial proclamation

Two months ago, President Russell M. Nelson introduced a new bicentennial proclamation in general conference. 

In a recent devotional for missionaries worldwide, Elder Ronald A. Rasband of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles taught missionaries some of the precious truths contained in the proclamation, reported Church News.

Elder Rasband invited sister missionaries in the audience to read the proclamation aloud, paragraph by paragraph, as he discussed some of its key truths, including "Heavenly Father loves His children" and "the Lord will direct your path."

In a post on Facebook, Elder Rasband encouraged each of us to study “The Restoration of the Fulness of the Gospel: A Bicentennial Proclamation to the World.”

“If you have not yet taken the opportunity to study this proclamation, I encourage you to study it,” Elder Rasband wrote. “If you have not yet shared it with a loved one, I urge you to share it. . . . Know it, use it, study it, pray about it, find with it, teach it, bear testimony of it, and make it a part of your very lives."
