Adjustments to Missionary Service: New Options Available

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
The COVID-19 pandemic has required many adjustments to missionary service, including the need for large numbers of missionaries to return to the United States and Canada from around the world. The ability to reassign these missionaries—even on a temporary basis—has now become more limited by changing conditions. This has created a measure of uncertainty for many missionaries and their families.
We have prayerfully considered these circumstances and are making available two opportunities for missionary service for those who have returned and are awaiting reassignment or may yet be required to return to the U.S. and Canada. Each opportunity requires a temporary release prior to reassignment. These options, as well as opportunities for prospective missionaries and missionaries beginning their service, can be found here.
We are confident that missionaries and prospective missionaries will seek the counsel of parents, priesthood leaders and the Lord as they consider their future missionary service.
Please know of our deep love for missionaries and their families as we all continue to participate in this great work together.
Sincerely,
The First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles
