How Will I Spend Most of My Time?

Each day you will plan, study, and teach. The daily pattern of planning, studying, and teaching activities fit together. Planning prepares you to study with a focus on your investigators. Studying prepares you to teach by the Spirit. Teaching helps you better understand your investigators—and what to plan and study next. Each step is an opportunity to seek direction from the Lord and fulfill your purpose as a missionary.

Your teachers will help you become effective as you plan, study, and teach. Ultimately you will be able to conduct these activities on your own as you consistently focus on helping those you teach have faith in Jesus Christ and become converted.

What Does a Typical Day Look Like?

The example below represents a typical day at the MTC. You have a schedule indicating when you have all of your activities and where they are. Use your daily planner to write down your specific plans for each activity.

Each day (except Sundays) you will teach a progressing investigator. Missionaries who are not teaching during the progressing investigator block should conduct companion study.

Most days include instruction on one of the eight Fundamentals, Read the Book of Mormon, Lessons in Chapter 3, Study & Prepare to Teach, Coaching Missionary Study, and Demonstrate Teaching.
