Missionary Experience

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

“I am so excited to have this opportunity to serve the Lord. At first, I didn't know as much as others and felt out of my league. But everyone has been kind and willing to work with me and has helped me learn. I am happy to be extending my mission and continuing to serve as a FamilySearch Wiki missionary with wonderful missionaries and employees. I am enjoying the process of learning more about family history. I have learned that we are never alone doing the Lord's work; He is always there to encourage us and help us to learn new things.” —Sister Barbara Rogers, FamilySearch
