A new feature on LDS Tools and lets you refer a friend directly to missionaries and collaborate with them as they contact and teach your friend.

Watch the video below to learn how members and missionaries can work together more effectively to help people come unto Christ.

No matter where your friend lives, when you submit a name to the missionaries, you can:

  • Be part of the process by helping the missionaries understand your friend’s needs, interests, questions, and preferred method of communication. After submitting your friend’s contact information, you will see contact information for the missionaries, bishop, and ward mission leader where your friend lives.
  • Participate in missionary lessons or gospel discussions in person or through phone or video chat. You can be as involved in teaching your friend as you want to be.
  • Follow up with your friend between missionary appointments to answer questions and provide support.

To submit a referral to the missionaries, use the LDS tools mobile app or go to, which is available in 28 languages.

For step-by-step instructions, see the slides “Sharing the Gospel with a Friend” or read the article “New Way to Refer Your Friends to the LDS Missionaries.”
