Four Important Tips to Protect Missionaries


The Lord has provided measures to help keep missionaries safe from spiritual and physical hazards, Elder David F. Evans of the Seventy and Executive Director of the Missionary Department said during the 2015 Seminar for New Mission Presidents held in the Provo Missionary Training Center on June 25.

He said he wouldn’t speak of the usual safety concerns, such as carbon monoxide and smoke detectors, seat belts, bike helmets, or the avoidance of pornography or other material introduced through technology.

“Rather, I will speak of those principles of spiritual and physical safety and the safeguards that are available to you and that apply no matter where you serve and no matter the environment around you,” he said.


Drawing from the words of Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, Elder Evans echoed his words of teaching—and reteaching—the fundamental doctrine of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
