Too late!! My father has already served 5 years in Antarctica on ANARE expeditons .... he has a convert from the 1961 Mawson base group and the language spoken .... Australian

The Elders would blend right in with the penguins! Antarctica...what a wonderful place to visit. Their are 5 separate settlements on the continent which could be set up as 5 branches!

April Fools!!! I just saw a cute video where the Mom made a fake mission call to this mission for her son. It was a hoot. I suspect that is the source of this announcement, but please let me know if I am wrong...LOL1520

Great April Fool! But as rapidly as the number of missions in the Church is growing, it is at least plausible. Wonderful spoof!

GREAT April Fool's joke and that poor missionary will always have a good memory of the day he opened his mission call.

This has to be an April Fool's joke, but I love it! It is super funny!! "The language of the mission will be Emperor Penguin." Too funny!!

My daughter was just called to this mission! Very exciting, except that she wears a sweater on a hot summer day in St. George. The good news is that she loves dalmations, so penguins are close enough.

Not quite as convincing as Taco Bell's announcement they were buying the Liberty Bell, but clever nonetheless.
