  1. I did a slide show of my son ,when he was on his mission, & presented it to pur primary & young men & women. It was a great teaching tool & helped the younger people have a better underrstanding of the daily activites of the missionay life. I still have it on my computer & my son & I have shared with our non-member friends & family (who were very supportive of him & mission!!).

  2. Missionaries are basically recruiters for an organization/business that must grow in order to remain economically and politically viable. People are indoctrinated, become zealots in the service of this organization and they believe they are doing “gods work”. It’s a little sad and more than a little scary in this day and age.
