Elder Hales Encourages Scouts to Earn Their Duty to God

“I promise you that [Duty to God] will provide you with a living testimony that will sustain you throughout your life,” Elder Robert D. Hales of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles said in an article in the November 2001Ensign. “Where available, Scouting can also help you in this effort,” he said.

“Some of the great blessings of these programs,” he added, “. . . are that as the youth of the Church, you will have a clear understanding of who you are, you will be accountable for your actions, you will take responsibility for the conduct of your life, and you will be able to set goals so that you might achieve what you were sent to earth to achieve. Our plea is that you strive to do your very best.”
