Chapter 2—The Call to Young People

Divine Appointment

The Lord has appointed the youth to be His helping hand.—Testimonies for the Church 7:64. ChS 30.1

With such an army of workers as our youth, rightly trained, might furnish, how soon the message of a crucified, risen, and soon-coming Saviour might be carried to the whole world!—Education, 271. ChS 30.2

We have an army of youth today who can do much if they are properly directed and encouraged. We want our children to believe the truth. We want them to be blessed of God. We want them to act a part in well-organized plans for helping other youth. Let all be so trained that they may rightly represent the truth, giving the reason of the hope that is within them, and honoring God in any branch of the work where they are qualified to labor.—General Conference Daily Bulletin, January 29, 1893, 24. ChS 30.3
