Missionaries will flood the earth :D

Fantastic increase in missionary applications!

"As Church leaders had anticipated when the change was announced, the number of individuals who have begun the missionary application process has increased significantly. Typically approximately 700 new applications are started each week. The last two weeks that number has increased to approximately 4,000 per week. Slightly more than half of the applicants are women."

"These are early numbers and it is difficult to say exactly where we will be over the coming months but we are grateful for the willingness of our members to make the sacrifice to serve people around the world. We recognize that Church members are interested to know additional details on the logistics of this change as discussed after the announcement and look forward to providing more details as the program moves forward."

Wow that means an increase from about 100 applications a day to almost 600 a day!
We're excited to prepare and then finally meet all those new and motivated missionaries.
This is the work of God and he's working with us.
