Elder Nelson's Mom here:
When Elder Nelson received his mission call to Madagascar, we looked all over for information about both the mission and the country since we had no experience with that part of the world. Finding info was pretty hit and miss. Since then I came across the Prepare to Serve website. They have all sorts of info and blogs about most missions. So, if you have your call and are looking for information about your assignment, it would be a great place to start. Good luck!
