"Mormon Missionaries: Who Are They?"

They are the Mormon Missionaries, young men and women who devote eighteen months to two years of their life to preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ as restored through living prophets.

These young people put schooling, dating, and careers on hold because they know that the message they share is important for the whole world to hear. They pay their own way, or get help from family and friends, work six days a week, twelve hours a day and only call home twice a year.

Mormon missionaries are expected to wake up every morning at 6:30 A.M., after which they study the scriptures and prepare for their day. In a typical day, a pair of Mormon missionaries will hand out copies of the Book of Mormon, share their witnesses to dozens, maybe hundreds of people that Jesus Christ lives and that Joseph Smith was a modern prophet and that the Mormon Church is Godís Church restored to the earth.

In addition to handing out copies of the Book of Mormon, Mormon missionaries also hand out Bibles, videos about the life of Jesus Christ, and pamphlets and other items designed to strengthen families.

Contrary to popular belief, Mormon missionaries are not some highly trained, highly skilled propaganda force. They are regular people, young men and women or even retired couples (nearly 5,000 a year), who put their every-day life on hold to share the Gospel and the Book of Mormon.

They receive only a few weeks of training on how to talk to people and avoid confrontation when speaking about religion. Some receive language training for a few weeks. Beyond that, most of them have been going to Church for years and learned about the Gospel in Sunday School or other Church meetings.

They may not know everything there is to know about the scriptures, but they have powerful testimonies of the truthfulness of their message. All Mormon Missionaries travel two by two just as the Lord Jesus directed his Apostles: "And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits (Mark 6:7)."
