Opportunities for Service

Missionaries are not assigned to an area just to baptize. They are there to uplift and strengthen not only members and investigators of the Church, but the people in general. Missionaries strive to leave the area and the people better off than when they arrived. There are lots of opportunities to provide local service. Here's an example of a run down, inhabitable building that the Missionaries cleaned.

Building needs attention

Graffiti and holes- Elder Kata using a shirt as a mask

The dust and debris made breathing difficult while cleaning
Electrical outlets were exposed

Painting over inappropriate words and pictures

Helps to be almost 6'4" when painting

Paint helps so much

Service as a team
Many hands make light work

Happy to serve
