The most important thing you will do in preparing to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is enter one of the Lord’s holy temples and make covenants of eternal significance. More on these covenants can be found in a post written earlier this week–“The next big step: Understanding the importance of the temple in mission preparation.”
Because going to the temple for the first time is a big and important experience, it can seem a little daunting or overwhelming. However, proper preparation can help immensely with the process. I was blessed enough to attend the temple for the first time on Friday, and I loved it. Thankfully, I had some wonderful leaders and advice which helped me appreciate the experience–advise which I’d like to pass on to you.
