The first step is to schedule an interview with the Area Temple and Family History Consultants at the Riverton FamilySearch Library by calling either Elder Ekblad at 801-240-9625 or Sister Ekblad at calling 801-240-9615. The interview is required for all those who desire to serve as a Church-service missionary at the library.
