An LDS mission

For those of you who don’t know, the purpose of an lds mission is to, “invite others to come unto Christ and provide service for others”. What I do is teach people about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and its doctrine. I also serve people if there is an opportunity available or if someone tells me that they need help with something.

We don’t get paid. Missionaries actually pay monthly to serve a mission. A mission is seen as an opportunity, not a job.

If we don’t have a person to visit already, we may go door to door or contact someone on the street to explain a principle or teaching of His gospel. We also may have the opportunity to chat with people on mormon.org or over the phone if they have any questions about the LDS (Latter-day Saints) church. We set up appointments to teach people who are interested in learning about this gospel.

Girls serve for 18 months starting at age 19, and guys serve for 24 months starting at the age of 18.

We are always together with a companion. We are never alone.

We don’t have breaks to sight see or go shopping. We are only there to reach out to people, teach them, serve them, and love them as God loves them. One day out of the week we prepare for the rest of the week by doing our laundry, doing any shopping for necessities, and plan out our week.

We can also take part in sports or activities for fun, but not in any competitive way.

If you have any other questions about an LDS mission, you can go on mormon.org and find out or ask an actual Mormon missionary. 🙂
