Come Serve a Senior Mission . .

Come Serve a Senior Mission in Honduras . . .


What can I say?

Countless opportunities await Senior Missionaries to help keep the Lord’s work moving forward.

Married couples can be found in the Church’s 406 missions serving alongside the younger missionaries at a time in their lives they could be enjoying hobbies during their retirement such as spending more time on the golf course, fishing, traveling or being with their grandchildren. Some couples end up serving multiple missions because they find the opportunity to serve others very rewarding.

This is an outright blatant plea for your consideration . .

We're even willing to offer a bribe (or a promise) of sorts  . . .

What is it?

Hopefully I have your attention!

  • Many roads are narrow and difficult to maneuver.
  • Traffic is crazy and frequently causes long lines.

  • In some neighborhoods children must play inside during the day as it's too dangerous to go out and play in the streets.
  • Intestinal parasites are a possibility and one takes medication to prevent / overcome.
  • Tens of thousands of taxi's are honking constantly in the bigger cities.
  • Noise congestion and rubble abound in San Pedro Sula.
  • The no-see-um's at the beaches are particularly annoying.
  • Time is indeterminate and no one is bothered by tardiness.
  • Baleades, a tortilla of rice and beans are typical daily fare.
  • During the rainy season it rains, and rains . . . . and rains and rains . . .

Instructions for the online recommendation.

Just a reminder - 

As of September 1, 2011, couples may serve for 6, 12, 18, or 23 months. In addition, a cap of $1,400 (US) per month will be established for housing costs.
In the past, the policy has been that couples serving outside their country of residence were called for at least 18 months. Those wishing to serve outside their country of residence for less than 18 months may now do so if they pay for their own transportation to and from the field.
A change in housing costs for senior missionaries will also take place in September. Missions, temples, or area administration offices now will locate and secure appropriate housing and pay all housing costs (including rent, utilities, and furnishings). Missionary couples will then reimburse some or all of those housing costs up to the cap.

Blessings await!
