    They had several English speaking missionaries man the referral center in the MTC when I was there. Stated 5 weeks hit three. Blessing of English Mission three weeks not eight in MTC. When we dropped my brother off after I got home and I didn,t have to go there Relief. But five weeks for tee enter.

    They taught you to be pushy to get referals. MTC Telecenter misionaries knew more than the missionaries in the field. Those that served stateside did you get any interesting comments on your needed referals? Service project offers things we could do to help. One new member that should not of been baptized refered someone from new member survey. Psycho beat up women she said that's not the man he really is.

    But we're to ask for referals and say why not. Some lady was upset she could not go to relatives wedding we were cult. I tried to say you could if joined church. I could not do anything different then people said face to face. She would not take missionaries regardless just one of many excuses.

    There may be a few civil weddings by temple but I bet most people will go straight to temple.

    My MTC companion was a UF Gator. During one of our call center shifts, he called someone who was watching the UF - FSU game, when FSU was ranked #1 the entire season and went 12-0. He spent probably a good 20 minutes on that call, mostly just getting updates on the score. To my knowledge, that was the most successful interaction any of us really had, unless you count the in-the-field missionaries who would call up just to screw with us.
