Return Missionary List?

Postby justin.scott » Sun Feb 28, 2016 11:29 am

Hello to all of you out there,

I'm curious if there is a list we can generate via LDS.org or MLS that highlights mission service. We are trying to pull together a class for return missionaries, so it would be good to have an easy list to pull up rather than go through each new record to find out if the member served a mission.

Any help would be appreciated.

You can use a custom report in MLS to show the mission country and language for members of your ward (or stake, if you're a stake clerk).

Any idea which country/language is listed when a person has served more than one mission?

This was discussed here; it seems to be inconsistent:

It doesn't seem inconsistent to me; every post in that discussion reports that the country/language recorded is for the first full-time mission the person completed.

True, if you go by mission completed. I was looking at it from the perspective of mission started (as if it was recorded when a member arrived in their mission), in which case the last example (Spain / USA) would be an exception.
