Are you sure you read that correctly? For missions that use iPad Minis, the iPad is given to the missionary when he/she arrives in the mission, and the iPad will already be set up correctly. There's no way you can purchase and set up the iPad on your own, so your son cannot "bring" a Church-configured device. The "purchase" that you need to make is simply to work with your ward clerk to make a payment to the ward to cover the cost that Church Headquarters will charge to your ward for the iPad.
