News Flash: Boom in new LDS missionaries leads to creation of 58 new missions

Good morning all!

Yesterday, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced the creation of 58 new missions. These will be split from some of the existing 347 missions, and will not cover any new territories or countries. The changes are meant to accommodate the influx of missionary work that has occurred since the announcement of new ages for missionary service by Thomas S. Monson, president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in October (a large part of this influx, I am proud to say, being the result of sister missionaries–well done sisters!).

These are exciting times for missionary work, and there’s no better time to be preparing for a mission.

Some lovely sister missionaries in the Belgium mission.

  1. Interesting topics for Sister Missionaries in Mission Preparation Reading List. No doubt very helpful. Found an interesting Youtube video on pre-mission preparation for young 18 year old Elders and 19 year old Sisters. May be of value to the viewers of this site. The youtube URL is: http://youtu.be/rD7uw7VdXHQ

    Enjoy!
