As you sing the Spirit is able to touch others.

The Lord will bless you for your service.

Vitality, spirit and enthusiasm...the earth needs it more than ever before.

Preach two by two.

You do not go on a mission alone, you go two by two.

Support each other. The Lord established a pattern.

Learn to deal with and live with your companion.

Promise you will have happy relationship.

Study with your companion. Together you will understand more than you could by self.

Realize the importance of leadership.

Be willing to teach and learn from your companion.

Learn how to serve each other. Try to do little things for your companionship.

Build unity...if you are not one you are not mine.

Avoid contention. Never allow contention to enter in.

Never be alone. Never hug a child.

Go to bed and wake up with companion at same time.

Hope you have companionships that bless your lives.

Doesn't matter the size or the shape, it's what's inside your companion.
