During my two years in Africa, I had vowed that if I ever had the opportunity to work with prospective missionaries, I would let them know what it was really like out in the mission field.
After returning from the South Africa Cape Town Mission in 1991, I was called to be mission leader of my ward at Brigham Young University. Since I was living in the dorms, the ward featured lots of freshmen planning to serve missions at the end of the school year and only one nonmember. So my chief function was to teach the missionary preparation class.
