England London Mission leaders President David Checketts and Sister Deborah Checketts, with guest host Sister Sheri L. Dew, discuss missionary work during the pandemic

Church News


Some of the most memorable reports of how the global COVID-19 pandemic affected The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints revolve around missionary work. Elders and sisters in the England London Mission responded to the constraints brought on by COVID-19 — including quarantining in their flats — with creativity and determination. Mission President David Checketts and his companion, Sister Deborah Checketts, have served nearly half of their three-year leadership assignment during the global pandemic. While the struggles have been difficult, the blessings have been bountiful, they report. In this episode of the Church News Podcast, they are joined by their friend and guest host Sister Sheri L. Dew as they discuss preaching during the pandemic and the miracles they witnessed as the work moved forward in spite of COVID-19.
