About the Mormon Missionary Preparation Web Site
I make no claim to be an expert in the area of sharing the gospel or preparing missionaries for the work they will do. But I have felt impressed by the Spirit to start this Web site. The site is geared toward future missionaries and is designed to help them prepare physically and spiritually. I want the site to be informative, uplifting and interactive. If you have any questions or comments about the site, please contact me. I particularly hope the young men and women preparing to go on missions will use this contact form to ask me questions.
