Coronavirus Necessitates New Era In Church’s Missionary Work

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – A new era of missionary work has begun for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as a result of the deadly and contagious coronavirus pandemic that has swept across the world.

It’s an unprecedented day for missionary work in the Church. The quick onset of the pandemic generated the challenge of navigating tens of thousands of missionaries back to their homelands.

Never before has the church had to organize the mass transit of so many missionaries so quickly. Decisions then had to be made on how to get missionaries back into the field.

Along the way, a new era in missionary work has been born. Social media is now playing a key role in the miracle of conversion and missionaries are busier than ever.

Incredible stories are emerging throughout the world as people are finding the need to turn to God in these troubling times.

In the “Onward Ever Onward: A New Era Of Missionary Work” documentary, KSL-TV talks to those who have been directly affected by the changes. Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles shares insight about what is happening and how it is impacting the missionary efforts worldwide.

The full documentary airs on KSL-TV Saturday at noon, following the first session of General Conference. It will also air live on the KSL-TV streaming app. Visit ksltv.com/app for download links.
