I was reminded of this event that happened about a year ago and thought I would share it again.
When the Book of Mormon musical came to Broadway and made such of hit, the Washington Post came to our mission to see what "real missionaries do".
We chose 2 of our finest, Elders Gregg Karren and David Liew and allowed the reporters to spend about 3 days accompanying them as they performed their mission work and to be interviewed at great length.
I must say the elders were wonderful. They were bold and confident and friendly and honest and the reporters were very impressed. They tried to get them "confused and ask them difficult questions", but the elders always brought it back to Jesus Christ, His doctrine and the restoration.
We were really proud of them. Although they had hours of interviews and footage, they only wrote this short article, but had a video attached that followed the elders as they went tracting and teaching.
