Im dating a mormon missionary
Members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles are responsible for assigning missionaries to a particular mission.
A prospective missionary receiving the call to serve is generally considered to be a major event in LDS culture; family members, friends, and members of the prospective missionary's congregation often gather together when a call arrives, which the prospective missionary opens and reads aloud to the group.
Many Latter-day Saints save money during their teenage years to cover their mission expenses.All missionaries are set apart by the laying on of hands to preach the gospel; this is usually performed by the missionary's stake president.Prospective missionaries also usually attend the temple for the first time to receive their endowment if they have not already done so. Missionaries who will not be learning a language in order to serve their missions spend three weeks at an MTC where they practice using proselytizing materials, learn expected conduct, and study the scriptures.However, the vast majority of missionaries serve the whole two-year (men) or eighteen-month (women) terms.Women who would like to serve a mission must meet the same standards of worthiness and be at least 19 years old.
