With the rate of sister missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints nearly tripling over the past year, the demand for LDS mission maps has skyrocketed.
North Ogden, UT (PRWEB) March 31, 2014
Mission Tracker creates new mission maps as they are ordered and currently offers up-to-date maps for over 250 of the more than 400 different LDS missions. With the rate of sister missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints nearly tripling over the past year, the demand for LDS mission maps has skyrocketed. Most missionaries and their families like to see the area where the missionary will be serving, and standard maps don't show the mission boundaries.
Mission Tracker verifies current boundaries whenever a map is ordered and utilizes modern computer technology to create colorful topographical maps with the approximate mission boundaries outlined. As each new map is created, it is uploaded to the website and is available as a PDF download for access from anywhere in the world. Maps already in the system are frequently checked against the current boundaries of each mission. New maps for any mission can be created, even if they are not currently in the database. Approximately 20 percent of all orders are for maps that are not currently in the system.
Although there is no new change to the age at which sister missionaries may serve expected at the upcoming LDS Church General Conference in April, there has definitely been a huge impact on young women over the past year because they are able to begin service at age 19 rather than age 21. While the number of sister missionaries is not expected to make such a radical jump again, the current numbers are expected to remain constant because young women may serve before they begin college or start their careers. In addition, with the ability to begin service at age 18 rather than 19, many young men also continue to serve missions before starting college. The number of young men serving LDS missions jumped from about 50,000 to over 61,000 during 2013, bringing the total number of missionaries to over 83,000 at the end of the year.
Mission Tracker is dedicated to offering LDS mission maps for all the missions where young women, young men, and senior couples and mission presidents are serving. Whether a map is already on file or needs to be created, it can be available in a short period of time. A list of the up-do-date maps showing mission boundaries that have already been created is available at ldsmissiontracker.com.
