Tell your story

How did a mission change your life?

We want to hear from people who had great experiences on missions and who remain active members of the church. We equally want to hear from people who regret going on a mission. And from people who came home early from their missions. We want to know why some people choose not to go on missions despite the pressure to serve. And we want to know why some converts and other people who normally wouldn’t be expected to go decide to serve anyway.
