Missionary Experience

Read about the experience missionaries are having as they make a lasting impact:

"A group of youth just came to our office from Claveria in the Laoag, Philippines mission on their way to the temple today. We helped them print temple cards from the four generation sheets we left them just two weeks ago. It was a great experience to see instant results from our training. Their leaders, consultants and family history director were with them and it was a real treat for us to see them here so soon after teaching them about registering, filling out the pedigree sheet, and printing the family ordinance records and temple cards. They are in the temple right now doing the work and will take the 13 hour bus ride back to their home in the morning. They are faithful people! We love our experience thus far here in this country and time is flying by because we are so busy."
--Elder and Sister Hatch (Philippines Area Office)
