August was a busy month!
We didn’t get as much done as we usually do, mostly because of moving to a new apartment. But, now we’re settled and getting back into action. Plus, we have a few interns to help us pick up the pace!
Some highlights from August:
- We conducted/edited/uploaded a handful of interviews with RMs.
- We found out we’ll have three student interns this semester.
- We added tons of missionary blogs to the mission pages.
- We moved to south of BYU campus.
- We continued experimenting with Instagram.
Coming up in September
- Grow our following on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and YouTube.
- Conduct/Edit/Upload video interviews with RMs.
- Update the Mission Blog Indexes on the Mission Pages.
- Hold weekly meetings with our interns.
