LDS Missionaries are scattered around the globe, but did you know how they are assigned to their missions? Elder Christofferson recently answered the question in his Facebook Page.
Occasionally as I travel, I am asked questions about how missionaries are assigned to their missions.
Over a year ago Elder Christofferson also answered the same question, and he called it as a "sacred responsibility" he published the following statements below:
I recently assigned missionaries, a sacred responsibility for which we always come fasting. I assigned 240, my share of the 1,047 (which includes young missionaries, senior couples, and senior sisters) whose papers were ready for assignment last week. We are assisted in this sacred experience by a member of the Missionary Department staff, who keeps records and manages the computer screens on which we view the essential information on elders and sisters and the needs (including languages) of our more than 400 missions in the world.
Share the Gospel to everyone.
“I now extend to you the invitation to help transform the trickle into a flood. Beginning at this place on this day, I exhort you
to sweep the earth with messages filled with righteousness and truth — messages that are authentic, edifying, and
praiseworthy — and literally to sweep the earth as with a flood.”
- Elder Bednar
