What are you going to put in your mission spiritual shopping cart?

At transfer meeting--one of our favorite meetings--the returning missionaries share one golden truth I learned on my mission that will change my life forever such as "Attitude can change everything."  "I am a beloved daughter of God."  "The Gospel of Jesus Christ is a gospel or change."
So surely you're wondering why the shopping cart loaded and running.  President introduced his remarks with a situation: suppose you had just won a 15 minute shopping spree.  What would you put in your cart?  Then he asked: what are you going to put in your spiritual shopping cart?  He related it to the scripture, "that same spirit which doth possess your bodies at the time that ye go out of this life, that same spirit will have power to possess your body in that eternal world." (Alma 34:34) He paraphrased it to say,"that same spirit that doth possess your bodies as you leave this mission..."

What are missionaries packing in those bags?  What are they packing in their spiritual bags? 
So Elder how many pair of Goodwill
shoes do you really need?
12--you mean twelve??

No question what's in these bags.

What caption would you suggest?
