Preparing to serve a mission doesn’t start in the MTC. With the Church moving to being Home Centered-Church Supported, missionaries and their parents have an increasing need to prepare missionaries while they are young. With a new book from Robert Conrilles and Taylor Halverson, parents have a new tool to help them to overcome this challenge.

Brad Wilcox is a noted speaker and BYU Professor, a return missionary and past mission president. Brother Wilcox is also the author of a new book from Deseret Book entitled, Because of the Messiah in a Manger. This episode features his book and his mission stories from Christmas’s in the field.
