Daniel Rellaford, from American Fork, served in the Madagascar Antanarivo Mission and has been home for about one year. Rellaford now works as a teacher in the MTC, and said missionaries will be in the MTC for a shortened period of time in the new MTC program, so they need to prepare before they arrive.
“With the new missionary system, the missionaries going English speaking are going to be in the MTC for 12 days,” Rellaford said. “The time to learn the doctrine is already passed by the time they get to the MTC. It’s really important to read and know ‘Preach My Gospel’ and the Book of Mormon.”
