The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has made some changes to the way male missionaries dress for proselytizing. This change will give missionaries the opportunity to dress in a blue shirt and with or no tie when necessary but does not put a stop to wearing a white shirt and tie.
This new way of dressing has been approved by the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. In commenting on the new style, chairman of the Missionary Executive Council, Elder Utchdorf said;
“Missionary attire has regularly adapted over time according to location, style, and custom,” he continues by saying, “These exceptions are a continuation of that process. In all our considerations, we keep top of mind the missionary’s calling to represent Jesus Christ, their health and safety, and the cultural sensitivities of the places where they serve.”
Missions would have to work with Area Presidency to know if the change is applicable to in their area.
