LDS Church to Conduct Safety Survey Among Missionaries

LDS Church to Conduct Safety Survey Among Missionaries

News Release from Mormon Newsroom

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the following statement Monday, June 5, 2017, about a safety survey being sent to Mormon missionaries around the world:

The safety of missionaries is of great importance to the Church. Missionaries are taught principles to keep themselves safe, and in areas where missionary safety may be at risk, we may alter assignments or provide them with more specific guidelines to enhance their safety.

This survey is to help us better understand the day-to-day experiences and perceptions of missionaries around the world related to physical safety. The questions from this confidential survey are detailed and specific. It is being sent to each of our young missionaries around the world. We want to understand the risks to safety our missionaries experience or perceive.

The data from this survey will help us identify areas or circumstances where missionary safety may be at the greatest risk. We intend to use the results to review and modify, as needed, missionary safety guidelines and instructions.

Missionaries are divinely watched over in the work they perform. However, we believe it’s important to understand their circumstances and make appropriate adjustments when needed.
