This Friday and Saturday (April 24 & 25, 2015), we will be attending the LDS Missionary Expo at the UCCU Center in Orem, UT. The expo is built to prepare missionaries to serve with everything they need, as well as support missionaries who are already out and help returned missionaries. This will be the 2nd LDS missionary expo that has been put on, and it’s only getting bigger and better. Built to take care of all things missionary, the expo was originally built to hasten the work in the latter days.
The LDS Missionary Expo has a five fold purpose:
- Inspire youth thinking about serving a mission,
- Help outbound missionaries and families with valuable tips and resources,
- Assist returning missionaries with education and career (and marriage) pursuits,
- Help prepare prospective senior missionaries to serve and learn more about available senior missionary service opportunities, and
- Contribute significant funds to the General Missionary Fund of the Church.
Enjoy these features at the expo:
- Hundreds of booths showcasing valuable missionary resources and tips to help prepare, serve and support a full-time missionary
- Returned Missionaries will enjoy a Career and Education Fair and other resources (marriage?)
- Senior Couples can find out about available options, how to prepare, and what to expect
- Inspirational Speakers for Youth, Families, and Senior Couples about missionary prep and service
- Frequent Fashion Shows by multiple clothing vendors with exclusive Expo specials!
- Wonderful Food, Music, & Live Entertainment
- Author Signings
- An International Area to find out more about the people and cultures where you’ll serve
- Outstanding Prizes and Giveaways
