December 2015 Reports

December’s been a great month!  We reached our goal of getting the 700th video interview uploaded, on December 31st! We discovered a way to gather tons of written mission surveys using Facebook groups. So far we’ve gathered about 1,200 surveys.

Here are some New Year’s Goals we have for 2016:

  • Conduct/Edit/Upload the 1,000th RM video interview.
  • Interview 10 well-known RMs.
  • Gather/Edit/Publish the 3,000th written survey.
