This week we are holding a contest to give away either a set of 100 missionary cards or a customized priesthood line of authority print. The winner will be able to pick whichever one he or she wants. These items are being provided by Express Digital Images, a company that has been serving the LDS and business community since 1987. The owners are friends of mine and I highly recommend their services.
Readers have one week to enter the contest. There are three ways to enter:
- Share your mission call on our virtual Missionary Farewell page. This is primarily for missionaries who recently received their call.
- Submit a Mission Report. Any returned missionary can share his or her experiences and testimony here.
- If neither of the first two options are applicable to you, you can enter by leaving a comment on this post.
Let me take a minute and tell you a little more about the products we’re giving away.
Missionary cards are a convenient way to keep in touch with friends, converts, investigators, members, companions, and other people you will meet on your mission. Missionary cards from Express Digital Images come in two sizes: 2″ x 3.5″ typical business card-sized, and a larger 2 1/2″ x 4″ card. For the traditional-sized card, you can choose between “The field is ready to harvest” wheat field background or a white background for the front of your card. The back of the card can be left blank if you like or you can have a favorite scripture printed on it. For the larger 2 1/2″ x 4″ card, you the same choices for the front of your card, and on the back you can have either the 13 Articles of Faith or your favorite scripture. This is a great gift for newly called missionaries or ones already in the field.
Priesthood Line of Authority Prints
Each Priesthood holder’s line of authority is the way in which he can trace his priesthood authority back to the Lord Jesus Christ. It shows who ordained you, and who ordained that person, and so on until you get back to Joseph Smith, Peter, James and John, and the Savior. Priesthood line of authority prints from Express Digital Images come in dozens of sizes and varieties. Ready-to-frame priesthood line of authority prints are available in an 11″ by 14″ size and larger with seven different backgrounds to choose from. They also come in a size to fit in your scriptures: large, regular, and compact scripture sizes. These also make a great gift for missionaries or any priesthood holder, husband, brother, or father (Father’s day is fast approaching).
P.S. When you order a priesthood line of authority from Express Digital Images, you’ll need to provide the names and ordination dates of everyone in your line of authority. EDI has instructions on their website how to request that information from LDS Church headquarters if you do not have it.
