November 2014 Reports

Prepare to Serve – Progress Report

November was a great month!

We conducted and uploaded about 40 video interviews with returned missionaries.  We also added hundreds of mission blogs to our mission blog index. At the beginning of the month we held our second LDS Influencers event at the Proctor’s home in Alpine, Utah.

Some things coming up in December

  • More video interviews with Returned Missionaries
  • Networking with and potentially interviewing high-profile LDS YouTubers and RMs (Stuart Edge, Working with Lemons, etc.)
  • Social media profile growth
  • Mission T-shirts posts
