Im dating a mormon missionary
Missionaries are often assigned to serve far from their homes, including in other countries.
Many missionaries learn a new language at a missionary training center as part of their assignment.
Missions typically last two years for males, 18 months for females, and 1 to 3 years for older couples.
The LDS Church strongly encourages, but does not require, missionary service for young men.
The mission assignment could be to any one of the 407 missions organized worldwide.
The LDS Church is one of the most active modern practitioners of missionary work, reporting that it had more than 70,000 full-time missionaries worldwide at the end of 2016 Most full-time LDS missionaries are single young men and women in their late teens and early twenties and older couples no longer with children in their home.
In the summer of 2018, the church announced they would begin emailing mission calls to prospective missionaries.Monson announced that all male missionaries, regardless of nation, could serve from age 18.Missionaries can be sent home for violating mission rules, and occasionally missionaries choose to go home for health or various other reasons.After application to the church and the requisite approval, prospective missionaries receive a "call to serve"—an official notification of their location assignment—from the President of the Church.The mission call also informs the prospective missionary what language he or she will be expected to use during their mission.
