Congratulations on having a missionary in the field! Their mission will be an awesome experience for you and your family. . . .
My Mission helps LDS missionaries organize and share their favorite missionary pictures, stories and experiences with their family and friends back home.
It's very easy to use once you understand how it works. You will really enjoy having all of your missionary pictures, emails and stories organized in an App on the phone in your pocket and on the Web. When their mission is finished, you can also just hit the "Print" button to print a very nice set of Mission Books.
My Mission helps missionary parents organize and manage all the pictures and emails, etc. that their children send home from their mission.
The basic concept is simple, you just (1) add the photos and emails, etc. that they send home to a database, and then (2) share the items that you like most with your family and friends. Everything that you add is confidential and you choose what to share.
People who are new to My Mission should (1) go to the website (www.MyMission.com), (2) click the "Login" link in the top-right corner, (3) click the "Create an Account" link in the popup, and (4) follow the instructions to fill in the form.
Next create a "missionary account" for your missionary. To do this, just (1) go to the My Mission website (www.MyMission.com), (2) click the "Login" link in the top-right corner to login, (3) use the "Missionary" menu at the top to select the "Add a Missionary" option, and then (4) just fill in the form. This will create a new missionary account that YOU manage and control.
Next, go to your Missionary's home page. . . . My Mission automatically sets up a custom home page and several special content pages for each missionary. You can find your missionary's home page by either (1) logging in, going to the MyMission.com home page (www.MyMission.com) and clicking the Missionary's name (a link 1/2 down the page on the right), or by (2) using the "Missionaries" menu at the top to select the "Browse Missionaries," option and then finding and clicking their name in the directory of missionaries.
The organization of your Missionary's website is very simple:
We provide 3 quick and easy ways for missionaries or Missionary Admins (parents) to add content (photos, emails, etc.).
Let's get started. . . . I encourage every Missionary Admin (missionary or their parents), to do 4 specific things first:
That's it! Now you have it! You're an experienced user!
All of the other pages in your missionary's website work the same. So now you know how to add content to any page. Please try to add the content you like to each page now. Good luck!
Your mission is VERY important! We want My Mission to work perfectly for you. Please contact us immediately if you have any questions or concerns.
Missionary work is a manifestation of our spiritual identity and heritage. We were foreordained in the premortal existence and born into mortality to fulfill the covenant and promise God made to Abraham. We are here upon the earth at this time to magnify the priesthood and to preach the gospel. That is who we are, and that is why we are here – today and always.
