Missionary (LDS Church)

Missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church)—widely known as Mormon missionaries—are volunteer representatives of the LDS Church who engage variously in proselytizing, church service, humanitarian aid, and community service. Mormon missionaries may serve on a full- or part-time basis, depending on the assignment, and are organized geographically into missions. The mission assignment could be to any one of the 421 missions organized worldwide.

There is a lot of sacrifice in becoming a missionary. This photo shows a sister giving up her heels for some flats in order to prepare herself for the work she is about to go and do. *I am the owner of this photo.

Though missions are often referred to, after the fact, as the 'best two years' of a person's life, it is often overlooked that a mission is probably also the hardest time of your life. Unlike going to college or moving away from home, a mission cuts you off from home in a way most people don't experience any other way. Rigorous schedules, hard work and rules against any contact with home except email and letters combine to make missions very difficult for many. At the same time, it should be remembered that, if you can power through those challenges and lose yourself in the work, you'll find your mission more rewarding than if you make P-day the highlight and focus of your week.

I'm preparing to leave for a mission very shortly, this website is very informative in teaching the standards and rules missionaries should follow such as: Dress and Grooming standards, What books to read, what music and items are allowed, and so on. It also covers basic questions about the process of submitting papers for a mission, how to prepare for a mission and how parents can help their missionary. It is very useful and I recommend it to anyone who is getting ready for a mission or those who want to know what its like to be a missionary.
