Who Knew???

I have learned a lot this week as I train as an Area Support Missionary for Family and Church History. I still have a LOT more that I need to learn. But I though I would share some of the things that I enjoyed learning so far. Here goes!!

Who knew that proselyting missionaries wear their name tags on the left side and service missionaries wear theirs on the right???

Who knew there are over 700 Area Support missionaries serving world wide???

Who knew that area support missionaries use Skype to chat one with another?? If you want my Skype contact email me.

Who knew that there is an Area Authority who is assigned to help teach Stake Presidents and other church leaders about family history?

Who knew that The Family and Church History organization is divided into three divisions: information, products and support?

Who knew that the two divisions under support are: The Family History Library Division and The Worldwide Support Division?

Who knew I would be so excited to provide support under the Worldwide Support Division??

Who knew the World Support Division statement is: Always follow the Spirit to provide friendly, accurate, and timely assistance that empowers members to:

Identify their ancestors.
Link their ancestors into families.
Ensure that temple ordinances are performed for their ancestors.

Who knew that providing area support is spiritual work??

Who knew this would be so incredibly life changing??

Interesting stuff Cindy. I sure didn't know any of that. Heck, I'd never heard of Skype before! I'm so glad you're enjoying being a church service missionary!!

I'm glad you made a new post, that vulture one was giving me the heebeejeebees. :)

Looks like you've learned alot. My brother in law in Norway has skype, and when he calls it is so scratchy. Do you have that trouble yet? I'd like to get that and the video one too. So cool!

I hope you don't mind, I found your blog on Katies, she had told me you were going to be a church service missionary. I have had such delightful experiences talking to people all over the world as I am trying to lean the New Family Search. It is so adictive! I love seeing the arrows turn to checks by the temple. Your blog is amazing.
