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.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.
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.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.
I thought about that too yesterday, maybe they have been contacted? Or will be soon, I haven't seen a pattern from the leadership of leaving people in the dark unnecessarily. I expected something more, but enjoyed it anyway.Those poor missionaries still wondering how long they will serve....
Maybe they will find out by watching October conference.
I think the reality is that the supposed vague calls are nothing but a myth. Never talked to anyone who actually saw one.I thought about that too yesterday, maybe they have been contacted?

Again, don't think any change is going to happen soon, and if it does will likely impact future missionaries not those already out.Mine is a little confused but still wondering what will go down and when. Says he doesn't feel like he'll be there the whole two years (which alarmed his mom quite a bit esp. since he's sick today from eating fish at a members house last night ). I told him to not worry about it and plan on the 24 months but work like he's only got 12 months to go. We'll see how it goes.
