The purpose of an LDS mission is to, “invite others to come unto Christ and provide service for others”. We teach people about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and its doctrine. We also serve people when the opportunity comes up.
We don’t get paid. Missionaries actually pay monthly to serve a mission. A mission is seen as a service opportunity, not a job.
If we don’t have an appointment already set up to visit someone, we may go door to door or contact someone on the street to share our beliefs and learn about theirs as well. 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.
Women serve for 18 months starting at age 19, and men serve for 24 months starting at the age of 18.
We are always together with a companion. We are never alone.
We have one day a week where we prepare for the rest of the week, do laundry, shop for necessities, and email our loved ones.
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. 🙂
