Here you go, the truth to the duration of a mission call. By the way, this call was received today. My Nephew's call who has been out for 18 months says the exact same thing as I verified it with his mother. Also, neighbor across the street is a big wig in the missionary department laughed when I asked him about it. He didn't verify or deny it but did say that about this time before GC, the same rumor comes up every conference.

118839

Anticipated has lots of meanings but they have been using this verbiage for at least 18 months. My wife is looking for my son's call who left like 6 years ago.

Dude, they just text the kids now to notify them of where they're going? Technology is cool and all, but that's kinda lame.

They get an email or text with a link in it where they can download their call and the paperwork specific to their mission. Actually, its pretty slick.

It sounds nicer than you will serve two years, or we expect you to, etc. Anticipate also tends to imply looking forward to something, rather than staring down an obligation. Better personal engagement leads to better results, and fewer washouts.

"Anticipate" was the same verbiage used in my call back in 2002. Now I'm thinking there is also a church video with the same thing where a bunch of youth open and read aloud their letters. Can't put my finger on which video it is though.

I think the word points towards the often unforeseen circumstances that might require one to return home before the 18/24 months.

I agree, I think a kid goes out, gets hurt or sick (really) and comes home feeling like a failure for a long time. That's no good, so this may help those situations.

I would have to look to see what mine said in.....87.

Still waiting on my daughter's call. Hope it doesn't come this week since she is out of the country.
