In record numbers, young men and young women from around the globe are feeling the desire to serve. Not all have the financial resources, however, to fully fund a full-time mission. Generous donors provide needed funding so that all who want to serve a full-time mission may do so. These missionaries not only bring blessings to the lives of the many people they serve and teach, but they are also blessed in return for their service as they gain communication and leadership skills.
In 2013, President Thomas S. Monson invited members to help support the missionaries - especially those of lesser means - in their efforts to serve the Lord in a meaningful way. Donations to the General Missionary Fund really do help “change and save lives.”
