Please note, this book is a little dated now. It was published in 2011, and a lot has changed since then about the process of applying for a mission. Much of the advice in the book, regarding temporal and spiritual matters, though, is still relevant if you wish to purchase and read the book. At some point, when I have a sizable chunk of free time, I’ll revise the book and publish a new edition. Until then, enjoy the old version of the book and enjoy the website, which is kept current on changes to policies and procedures involved in preparing for and going on a mission.
