On Feb 27, 2015 the beloved Jeffrey R. Holland, a holy prophet seer revelator and Apostle in the LDS Church, had an interview with Howard Hewitt where we learned about a marvelous inspired prophecy about next year when the Church will have a baseline of something around 100,000 missionaries. The enemies of the truth may scoff, weep, wail, and gnash their teeth about this glorious prophecy and the road its on. But its just another thing to study up on so you can find out for yourself whether or not the Church is truly true.http://www.hughhewitt.com/a-conversation-with-lds-elder-jeffrey-holland/
HH: 15 million Mormons now, right, Elder?
HH: And of those, 83, 85,000 are in mission fields right now?
JH: Right, about 85.
HH: All right, now I have had a lot of Mormon interns, two of whom have gone on mission. Marlon is not currently, and never went on a mission. But I would, one went to Zimbabwe.
HH: One stayed in San Antonio, Texas.
HH: The first was a man, the second was a woman. I would wonder what the burden of having all these young people on the road in an era of religious intolerance is like.
JH: It is a burden. It is a worry. We proceed with great faith. We say a lot of prayers on behalf of those young people, because they’re your sons and daughters and my sons and daughters, collectively speaking, and they’re someone’s child. And we worry about them a lot. But the miracle is that every indication we have, and we try to be very careful, we try to be very sensitive about where they work and to what locations they’re assigned and so on and so forth, but having said that, the statistics are that they’re safer in the mission field than they were at home. The chances for an accident, the chances for a serious difficulty or a death, are really minimal. We have been very, very blessed. We knock on wood and say our prayer, and don’t want to be arrogant about that, because there is a very high risk. But we’re greatly blessed, and they continue to come They continue to serve. And those numbers will increase. We’re projecting out probably within four years, the baseline number for the missionary force will be something around 100,000.
