SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 News)- The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced changes to their missionary recommendation process on Friday.
Starting on January 2, 2019 all young missionaries will be called to serve either a proselyting or service mission based on evaluations by medical professionals and church leaders.
Those called as service missionaries live at home and serve at Church operations, with nonprofit and charitable community organizations or in other assignments approved by their local Church leaders.
Additionally, proselyting missionaries who return home early due to accident, illness or other health conditions may be reassigned as service missionaries for the remainder of their missions.
