Building a Mission Wardrobe
Let's talk about one of the biggest mission prep steps... HAVING A MISSION WARDROBE. Chances are you aren't sure what to pack for your mission. With these simple 9 steps, we've made it easy on...
A mission bag is one of the most beneficial accessories to have on a mission. With it, you can carry all the material you need for a day’s work. No matter where you are or what the temperature is like, you will need something to carry scriptures and materials.
What Do Missionaries Carry in Their Bags?
There are many materials to choose from when you’re carrying your bag. Often, missionaries straight out of the MTC will think they need to carry their scriptures, Preach My Gospel, the missionary handbook, copies of the Book of Mormon, lotion, a snack, etc.
Carry Only What You Need
We recommend planning what you’re going to carry each day. Depending on what you’re doing and where you are, you’ll need different things. If you’re knocking on doors all day, you’ll want to bring lots of scriptures to give out. There is only so much space in the bag, so plan wisely.
Invest in a Good Bag
Many people want to save money where they can when preparing for a mission. We don’t blame you. We also don’t want your bag to fall apart 6 months into your mission. Getting a high-quality bag is really important. The Missionary Mall and the Sister Missionary Mall both carry high-quality, reinforced bags that are designed to last your entire mission.
Since there are many circumstances that missionaries are in, we have bags that cover many of these needs. Let’s talk about them!
