August 2014 Reports

Prepare to Serve – Progress Report

August has been a great month!

During August I finished updating the mission blog index and began updating the mission group lists.  I also updated the mission address pages to include the names of the mission president and the mission phone number.  We also grew our Pinterest following by about 2,000 followers.  I more or less caught up on uploading mission video interviews.  We found out that we’ll have several BYU interns to help us this Fall (perhaps a few more than last semester).  We also started looking into making a mobile app to make the mission videos easier to browse and more helpful.
Some things coming up in September
  • Growing our Pinterest following and traffic.
  • Coordinating two teams of student interns and developing creative plans to improve Prepare to Serve.
  • Finishing the annual mission groups update. – Traffic Report
