My oldest son has finished all of the preparation that is required to submit his mission papers, and our Stake President has formally submitted his application. Therefore, we should know where he will be serving around the end of the month – and he probably will leave around the beginning of this summer.
This is a very concise, sincere post – focused on a simple question:
What advice would you give my son before he enters the MTC?
NOTE: I have only one request. I am looking for any constructive advice, even that which is focused on potential negative aspects of serving a mission. I would love to have him read the comments from this post and gain a better understanding of both serving a mission and preparing to do so. What I am not soliciting is condemnations of the Church – or suggestions to “discover the truth before you make a horrible mistake”. Pelase respect those minimal restrictions and give him any advice you feel will help him as he serves.
