Missionary Experience

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

“When I first signed up I was unsure how this would work with my schedule. Soon I was in training for a month, and then the real question came up, ‘Will I be able to help others when I am so unsure of myself?’ It was after being set apart that I fully understood that I could make a difference and help patrons. Knowing that there are also experienced missionaries online waiting to assist when I could not answer a question or concern is calming. I am so happy that I volunteered for this calling. I will serve again when my time is up. I enjoy every day that I get to work with someone to find a solution on how FamilySearch works. I have met so many people from all over the country and enjoy talking with them and learn about their family. This is by far the best calling I have had in the Church.”
--Elder Howard (FamilySearch)
