The book "Mormon Doctrine" lists 50 things that need to happen before the second coming.

107 years after Joseph Smith sent someone to dedicate the land of Israel for the gathering of Judah the country of Israel was restored.

We can preach the Gospel throughout the world via the internet, even through borders that are closed to us.

Luke 21:34
34 ¶And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

Surfeiting - means to do in excess

This is our destiny—to prepare the kingdom of God for the return of the Savior. (Elder Neil A Anderson, Power in the Priesthood, General Conference October 2013

Moroni 8:22
22 For behold that all little children are alive in Christ, and also all they that are without the law. For the power of redemption cometh on all them that have no law; wherefore, he that is not condemned, or he that is under no condemnation, cannot repent; and unto such baptism availeth nothing—

The time is short before the coming of the Savior.   We need to increase our personal revelation in order to know what to do more quickly and consistently.

Doctrine and Covenants 33:3
3 For behold, the field is white already to harvest; and it is the eleventh hour, and the last time that I shall call laborers into my vineyard.

Hearken means to listen with reverence and obey.

Seek the spirit in all that you do.  Be constant.

Jesus gave the parables of things and people that are lost.   The coin doesn't know it is lost.  The lost sheep knows it is lost, but does not know how to come back.  The prodigal son knows he is lost and knows where to go to come back.  He just needs to be welcomed back and embraced.

The work in the latter-days in a spiritual one and it can only be comprehended spiritually.

We need to do better about having a prayer every morning before we go out into the world.

Doctrine and Covenants 50:13-14
13 Wherefore, I the Lord ask you this question—unto what were ye ordained? 14 To preach my gospel by the Spirit, even the Comforter which was sent forth to teach the truth.
To what is it that you have been called?

Even if we are not doing bad things, we can still do better.

Who better than someone's peers to share the Gospel with them or reactivate them.

General Session
Doctrine and Covenants 64:33
 33 Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great.

Elder Adolfo Franco of the Seventy spoke to us.

Doctrine and Covenants 88:6-7
6 He that ascended up on high, as also he descended below all things, in that he comprehended all things, that he might be in all and through all things, the light of truth; 7 Which truth shineth. This is the light of Christ. As also he is in the sun, and the light of the sun, and the power thereof by which it was made.
Because of the Atonement Christ comprehends all things we will ever go through.
Doctrine and Covenants 6:35-37
35 Behold, I do not condemn you; go your ways and sin no more; perform with soberness the work which I have commanded you. 36 Look unto me in every thought; doubt not, fear not. 37 Behold the wounds which pierced my side, and also the prints of the nails in my hands and feet; be faithful, keep my commandments, and ye shall inherit the kingdom of heaven.
We need to pray everyday before we leave the house, since it is not safe out there.

We need to meditate on the scriptures every day.
