The missionaries in Hawaii are helping to preserve history at Pearl Harbor as they perform service aboard one of the world's best known battleships.
The USS Missouri has witnessed some of the proudest moments in US history, from serving as the place of final surrender in WWII to her final mission to Pearl Harbor on the 50th anniversary of the attack. When she was decommissioned on March 31, 1992, the USS Missouri stood as the last active battleship in the world—a legacy of the lives, the values, and the nation she defended over five decades and three wars.
For the past four years, LDS missionaries have played a crucial role in maintaining this battleship’s rich heritage—a task that has been no small feat. Since 2010, groups of missionaries from all over Oahu report for duty on the USS Missouri every Wednesday, performing maintenance work from patching the old teakwood deck to shining up handrails.
In that time, the missionaries have performed an estimated 10,000 hours of service renovating and cleaning the 887 foot long battleship. Over the past 10 years, LDS missionaries and Church members have donated the equivalent of over a quarter of a million dollars in service hours.
