It is now up to us to apply the program and allow the youth and their families to reap the blessings of that partnership.” President Charles W. Dahlquist II YM General Open House, October 2005

How do we measure? ?
“Elder Ballard has given us a challenge to add ‘one more’ to the missionary force from each ward or branch in the Church. One who had not planned on serving a mission. He has indicated that just that would add, during this year, over 26,000 additional missionaries to those already serving. We support Elder Ballard’s challenge and encourage you to prayerfully select and prepare your ‘one more’ for missionary service.” President Charles W. Dahlquist II YM General Open House, October 2005
