Missionaries on Parade

Sister-Rachel Lynde Raccuia said:
We had the opportunity to be in our town’s Fourth of July Parade in La Porte Indiana! We made a float about families being forever, and were able to spread the gospel to literally thousands of people we passed out over 3,000 pass along/Mormon.org cards, and over 2,000 pieces of candy that each had a label on it that said Mormon.org, with a short restored truth like “You are a child of God!” Or “Families are Forever!” it was so much fun being able to share the gospel of happiness with so many people! The church is true! Alma 26:4 thousands do rejoice! We love being missionaries in the Chicago Mission!

It’s official- LDS Missionaries can now email friends, converts, priesthood leaders, etc. Here are some updated LDS Missionary email guidelines and policies.

LDS Missionary Email Policy

  • LDS Missionaries can email friends, converts and priesthood leaders.
  • While LDS Missionaries can email just about anyone, they should get permission from their mission president before emailing others of the opposite gender who live within mission boundaries.
  • LDS Missionaries should only access email once per week on their designated Preparation Day.
  • LDS Missionaries should only use MyLDSMail.net to send and receive emails.
  • LDS Missionaries should not use church members’ computers to access their emails (or for any other purpose).
  • LDS Missionaries should access their emails in a public place and where their missionary companion can see their screen.
  • LDS Missionaries should not become preoccupied with emailing others- they should focus on serving the Lord as an emissary of Jesus Christ.

Missionary emailing rules may also vary per mission, but here are the general guidelines from the Church Missionary Handbook as well as the ones mentioned above.
