What does the Inspired Pen say?
• “He who co-operates with the divine
purpose in imparting to the youth a
knowledge of God, and molding the
character into harmony with His, does a
high and noble work. As he awakens a
desire to reach God's ideal, he presents
an education that is as high as heaven
and as broad as the universe;” Education
p19
• “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! How soon might the
end come--the end of suffering and sorrow
and sin!” Counsels to Parents, Teachers, and Students p555
• If every church member were a living
missionary, the gospel would speedily be
proclaimed in all countries, to all peoples,
nations, and tongues. Testimonies for the
Church Volume 9, p32
