Stay home and do your preaching. You may actually get a few bucks in the collection plate.

These first five comments posted on here are juvenile and ridiculous. Sometimes you need to recognize you are "out of your league" and just shut up.

"Day one getting in we were grabbed by police and put into a building, interrogated for a number of hours, told we needed to pay various fines and fees and get shots - which we already had. It was all just a scheme for money,"

Sounds just like Obamacare!!!

Sure he wasn't in Kenya???

God Bless you for you sacrifice Jacob, great story!

Those who don't have a life often try to denigrate those who do.

The Mormons send their young adults on a 'mission' to try and acquire converts to their religion. Romney used this 'act of faith' to escape his draft call during Viet Nam...he was in Paris 'ministering'.

Anyhow,I was in Tokyo some years ago at the Meiji Shrine, a major Shinto shrine in that country and was disheartened to see young Mormon kids trying to grab off the daily Japanese visiters who were practicing their own native 2000 year old religious devotions. It takes a lot of gall to push a cult of mysterious gold tablets reportedly found a century earlier in America on foreigners. Embarrassing.

Barry Obama, Dec. 2, 2011 "More than 2,000 years ago, a child was born to two faithful travelers who could find rest only in a stable... But this was not just any child. Christ's birth made the angels rejoice...

Barry Obama, April 19, 2011 " there's something about the resurrection -- something about the resurrection of our savior, Jesus Christ... he took on the sins of the world... and he extended to us that unfathomable gift of grace and salvation through his death and resurrection."

So rover, compared to finding a few gold plates, it seems you would find Obama’s “pushing” on Americans cultish religious beliefs like virgin births, angels rejoicing, and eternal salvation through the dead rising a little embarrassing, too. LOL
