The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has been sending missionaries across the globe to share the message of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ for years. Traditionally, they’ve had to wait days (or even weeks) to receive their assignments by mail. Now, new missionaries can have their calls within minutes of their assignment being made.
The church posted following yesterday (Sept 5):
“The Church is rolling out a new initiative in which missionary candidates receive their assignments online instead of in the mail. This process has been tested in various parts of the world for the past several months and will now be expanded to all of Utah and Idaho.
By the end of 2018, it is anticipated that nearly all missionaries around the world with reliable internet access will receive their calls online to serve in one of the Church’s 407 missions in more than 150 countries.
‘Technology is there, and it’s so easy to do,’ said Elder Brent H. Nielson, executive director of the Missionary Department. ‘We just put it online and they can read it in a matter of minutes.'”
