Therefore, if ye have desires to serve God ye are called to the work.—Doctrine and Covenants 4:3
The willingness of Latter-day Saints to respond to calls to serve is a representation of their desire to do the will of the Lord. That arises from the individual witness that the gospel of Jesus Christ, restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith and contained in the Book of Mormon, is true.—Boyd K. Packer
