July 2014 Reports

Prepare to Serve – Progress Report

July’s been a good month!

During July I worked a bunch on updating the mission blog index.  I also uploaded more mission videos and grew our social media profiles.  I migrated a lot of LDS articles from my old LDS blog Scripture News to PreparetoServe.com.  I video recorded a day-long Missionary Moms Retreat in Salt Lake City, gave a few in-class presentations to BYU Mission Prep classes.  We applied for two teams of interns for Fall semester.  We also found a sponsor for our YouTube channel (Missionary Mall).
Some things coming up in August
  • Uploading video interviews with returned missionaries.
  • Having the new mission index on SugarDoodle.net go live (links to our content).
  • Growing our Pinterest following and traffic.
  • Finishing the annual mission blogs, groups and addresses update.
