The priesthood ban was lifted during Kimball's presidency and since 1978 there has been no restrictions to missionary service that are based on race or ethnicity.

After application to the church and the requisite approval, prospective missionaries receive a "call to serve"—an official notification of their location assignment—through the mail from the President of the Church.

The basic standards of missionary service and conduct are contained in the Missionary Handbook.

Missionaries are instructed that following these standards will protect them both physically and spiritually.

Missionaries bound for foreign-language missions spend six to nine weeks at an MTC, depending on the language to be learned.

During this period, they are encouraged not to speak in their native tongue but rather to immerse themselves in the new language.

Missionaries can be sent home for violating mission rules, and occasionally missionaries choose to go home for health or various other reasons.

However, the vast majority of missionaries serve the whole two-year (men) or eighteen-month (women) terms.

Women who would like to serve a mission must meet the same standards of worthiness and be at least 19 years old.

Women generally serve as missionaries for 18 months.

Missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church)—widely known as Mormon missionaries—are volunteer representatives of the LDS Church who engage variously in proselytizing, church service, humanitarian aid, and community service.
