This is the manual given to all graduates of the Gilead School.
It details everything they should expect from their new assignment and how to overcome problems and hardships.
This is a page by page reproduction of the original book.
Here is an excerpt from the book:
You are now a missionary, a minister of
Jehovah God trained for service in foreign fields. Your assignment and your responsibility are to help people of other lands to come to a knowledge of the truth. Try hard to succeed and make that your life. As a missionary you should endeavor to devote at least 150 hours a month to the field service. A reason must be stated on the home report if 150 hours is not reached. Please keep in mind that 150 hours is by no means the maximum number of hours a missionary may devote to the field service. It is not wise for a missionary to adopt the attitude that when he has reached the 150 hours for a month his missionary obligations are fulfilled and he may sit back and engage in other pursuits. Instead, his love for Jehovah, for the people and for his missionary privileges should motivate him to devote as much time as possible monthly to the preaching activity. By becoming thoroughly absorbed in the work and wholeheartedly engaging in all features of the missionary service it should be possible for most missionaries to reach and surpass the requirement of 150 hours. As a missionary you should set an example in zeal.
