Many missionaries along with local ward and branch leaders and teachers have difficulty adjusting to online or remote teaching. They say they can’t feel the Spirit while teaching “through a box.” But research and experience suggest other factors matter far more in teaching and learning than proximity.
Missionaries and members alike are adjusting to new circumstances caused by the global pandemic. Some of these new requirements may actually open up new avenues for sharing the gospel by full-time missionaries and everyday members alike that won’t change when “things get back to normal.”
Three other missionaries were injured but are expected to recover.
Though the #LightTheWorld campaign looks a little different this year, the goal is still to spread the message of the hope of the Savior across the world. A pair of Elders serving in Germany found a unique way to share the message, painting a mural on the historic Berlin Wall.
