LDS Church and Mission

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint Missionaries

Many wonder who Latter-day Saint missionaries are, what they do/teach, why they do it and where we can find them. The answers to these can be found at LDS Church website explaining about missionary work and its purpose.

"Missionaries can be single men between the ages of 18 and 25, single women over the age of 19 or retired couples. Missionaries work with a companion of the same gender during their mission, with the exception of couples, who work with their spouse. Single men serve missions for two years and single women serve missions for 18 months." There are currently more than 80,000 valiant missionaries both men and women serving the Lord in many parts of the world.

A missionary's purpose is to "invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end."

The gospel is our Heavenly Father's plan of happiness and each member of the Church has the responsibility to share the gospel to all God's children. Full-time missionaries sacrifice their time, families and love ones to share the truth to all mankind. I am grateful for the opportunity to experience this glorious work of missionary service and that I know greater blessings will come as I do my best to be a servant of the Lord. I know that I was called to where the Lord wants me to go and I know there are people in Idaho who are ready to receive the gospel. I know that our Savior lives and that He loves us. The atonement is real. Jesus' atonement shows His great and unconditional love for us.

Here's a glimpse of two sister missionaries and their experiences in the field.
