Gospel Topic: Missionary Preparation

by Larry Richman on January 18, 2013

In October, the Church lowered the age for missionary service.

Shortly thereafter, the Church announced that the number of new missionary applications had increased significantly–from an average of 700 per week to 4,000 per week. Notably, more than half of the applicants were women. I wrote an article about the record number of new sister missionaries.

The Church has now added a section on LDS.org with resources to help in missionary preparation. It’s one of the many Gospel Topics under the Teachings menu on LDS.org.

The missionary preparation section contains the following:

  • Gospel Knowledge and Testimony
  • Personal Worthiness
  • Physical and Emotional Health
  • Financial Preparation

You may also want to refer to my article resources for missionary preparation for additional resources.
