It varies, depending on the schedule of the Apostle who is asked to make the assignments that week. I expect that this coming week it may be later in the week because the Twelve are in Italy at the dedication of the Rome Italy Temple, which continues through Tuesday.
Before calls were sent by email, an assignment made in a particular week would be approved, processed, and the call letter and accompanying materials would arrive in the Church mail room the following Tuesday to be mailed that day. Depending on mail time, calls would arrive later that week or early the following week in the United States. Of course, it took longer to other parts of the world.
Now that calls are sent by email, I do not know when that happens. It is possible they go out early in the week, but I do not know for sure.
So I suppose if all goes according to plan that assignments would be made this coming week and calls would be sent out by email the following week. There are other factors involved, such as whether or not a call letter needs to be translated into the language of the missionary being called. That would add some time to the process, but probably no more than a day.
Now, please ignore everything I have just said. Do not sit by your mailbox or your inbox waiting for a call to arrive. You have been preparing, hopefully for years, to serve as a missionary. Continue to do those things that have helped you become worthy to attend the temple and ready to serve the Lord as his representative.
The call will come when it comes.
