Mormon missionaries follow a rigorous schedule during their full-time mission service. During the day, the most important activity is to find and teach people who are interested in learning more about the gospel of Jesus Christ and the beliefs of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Every part of their day revolves around this primary goal.
