President Thomas S. Monson taught: “Prepare to serve worthily, with an eye single to the glory of God and His purposes. You will never know the full influence of your testimony and your service, but you will return with gladness for having had the privilege of responding to a sacred call to serve the Master. You will be forever loved by those to whom you bring the light of truth. Your teachings will be found in their service. Your examples will be guides to follow. Your faith will prompt courage to meet life's challenges” (in Conference Report, Oct. 1991, 66; or Ensign, Nov. 1991, 48). The Missionary Preparation course is specifically designed to help you prepare to serve as a full-time missionary. In addition, you will learn ways that you can better be a member missionary.
Why do I need a manual?
The Missionary Preparation institute manual is a valuable tool that will help you prepare for your mission. Chapters include “Teaching by the Spirit,” “Physical and Emotional Preparation,” and “Preparing Investigators for Baptism and Confirmation.”
