Church Policies and Announcements

The following item appeared in a recent Messages, sent to stake/district/mission presidents and to bishops and branch presidents:

“Welfare Services Missionaries. There is an increasing need for welfare services missionaries who arc assigned ‘to assist priesthood leaders in the developing areas of the world to resolve temporal problems among members.’ (General Handbook of Instructions, p. 69.) Individuals are needed with professional education and experience in such areas as employment counseling, financial management, physical health, vocational training, social work, and agriculture. Also needed are persons with background in administering and directing various aspects of Church welfare services such as production projects, employment centers, or storehouses.”
