  Missionary - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A missionary is a propagator of religion, often an evangelist or other representative of a religious community who works among those outside of that community.
The English word "missionary" is derived from Latin, the equivalent of the Greek-derived word, "apostle".
Missionaries typically spend one to two months in the Missionary Training Center (MTC) in Provo, UT or in other MTCs throughout the world, studying scripture, learning new languages, and otherwise preparing themselves for the culture in which they will be living.

 Missionary position - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The missionary position is a common human sex position.
The man lies on his stomach on top of the woman, with head and feet aligned, his legs between her legs, and his groin at the same level as hers to facilitate penetration.
It is said that the name "missionary position" arose because this sex position was supposed to have been taught by Christian missionaries as the only "proper" sex position.

 The Mission Station Missionaries Missionary Missions
Missionary deputation is often looked upon as "the pits," a horrible experience through which fledgling missionaries must pass in order to become "real missionaries." "If only we could avoid deputation," say some who claim that otherwise they would consider missionary service.
A missionary on deputation is not merely a trainee, an apprentice, or a "wannabee" missionary.
While a visiting missionary must be careful not to usurp the leadership role of the local pastor, he can give a boost to the pastor by showing his people why they ought to be giving financially to missions.

 Ideas for Missionary Moms
We have 14 missionaries in the field and I have started a newsletter so that they can keep informed as to each others doings and so that we at home can be aware of and supportive of them.
As any missionary knows, especially those who are in a foreign land, you lose track of what is going on at home because of your spiritual growth and the change in culture.
And the missionaries thought it was a lot of fun to receive these items that they could use and not have to pack from one area to another.

 Catholic Culture : Document Library : Instruction on Missionary Cooperation
"The pilgrim Church is missionary by her very nature".[7] She received the mandate to carry on the universal Plan of salvation which springs, from all eternity, from the "source of love", that is from the charity of God the Father.
Missionary cooperation requires adequate coordination for it to be carried out in a spirit of ecclesial communion and in an ordered manner, and thus effectively attain its goal.
Mutual participation in missionary meetings, with exchange of experiences and initiatives, will be to the advantage of the Church's work of universal evangelization and will strengthen the bonds of communion and cooperation between the Holy See and the particular Churches, as well as among the ecclesial communities themselves, thus fostering missionary cooperation.

The missionary movement was the first of these movements to develop its own press, which was the largest religious press until it was surpassed by the temperance press in the mid-nineteenth century.
Most of the missionary press was the product of denominational missionary societies or of missionary societies serving a group of denominations.
While the basic function of the missionary press was to generate support for the missionary work, the periodicals also provided geographical and cultural information for the readers.
