If you enjoy watching Prepare to Serve video interviews with returned missionaries, you should be pretty excited about this. Lifey.org will soon host custom-built, embeddable video players for each mission, so that you’ll be able to easily browse all the video interviews for each mission.
Here’s an example of what the mission video players look like:
It takes a good chunk of time to create 450 of these mission video players, so it may take until the end of the summer for them all to be completed, but we’re adding new mission video players every week.
Simply click on your mission in this Lifey LDS Mission Index to see what resource we’ve created for your mission so far.
And if you live in the Utah area and would like to share your mission stories on the Prepare to Serve YouTube channel, email [email protected] . Thanks!
If you were inspired and entertained by the new Saturday’s Warrior, you’re sure to be inspired and entertained by some of the stories Elder Kestler (Clint Pulver) shares in his new interactive video autobiography. Enjoy! Some of his mission stories are hilarious..just sayin’!
Twin brothers left at the same time on their LDS missions so they could also return at the same time, limiting the time the best friends would be apart.
The Meldrum twins from West Jordan have been inseperable for 18 years and then were apart for two. The plan to leave and return together mostly worked, but one brother arrived at the Salt Lake International Airport about 24 hours before the other.
He waited at the gate to be reunited with his twin before the two went out to rejoin their family after a two-year absence.
Watch Steven Crass’s coverage of the missionary’s wait and emotional reunion below:
Returned missionary and Ellen DeGeneres fan Carly Christiansen received an incredible gift from her idol: a brand new car. Recently, Christiansen was given a “pre-show tour” of the studio, a tour that was really just a ruse to hide the fact that she was going to be featured on the show. Check out her priceless reaction!
A man had an incredible vision of the world while hiking in Russia. In his vision he saw white men with nametags and blue books. After the vision he searched online to try to discover who were the white men with nametags. After a while of searching the man came across Mormon.org and referred himself to the missionaries.
Such a cool story! God is a God of miracles and can be in our lives, if we let Him. Enjoy the video!
Elders Benjamin Allen and Darren Lacusta were out tracting on their bikes in Houston, Texas, when they heard a sound that made them stop: a frightened kitten crying out. The missionaries began searching for the source of the noise, noticing the sound was coming from a nearby storm drain. The two lifted off a manhole cover and one crawled into the hole to help rescue the kitten.
Later, the Elders found a home for the kitten (which was named Stormy) with a local member. After taking the kitten to the vet, the member discovered the animal’s back leg had been broken and might have to be amputated.
However, Elder Allen’s father offered to pay for the kitten to be taken to a specialist and for a surgery that inserted pins into Stormy’s leg to help heal the break, according to Deseret News.
Special thanks to LDS Living for helping us find this cute video.
Mormon.org recently released a “Mormon Beliefs” section on their YouTube channel that shares short videos tackling difficult questions, like what is the Book of Mormon, why do we have prophets, and what is the purpose of family.
This is the latest of the videos they have been working on that answers the question: What happens after we die?

“This is Jon Duane Perry, teaching his atheist bird Apollo some new tricks . . . I guess as long as Mormon missionaries don’t knock on the door, all should be fine.”
In case you haven’t guessed, all is not fine in this hilarious candid video from 2012, which features two poor missionaries whose teaching attempts are met with squawks and feathers! Let’s all pray for the missionaries out there who are feeling down because they have weeks full of knocking on atheist parrot doors.
