Mormon Missionaries

MorMons, not Morans...

Mormon Missionaries...

Has anyone here ever won any? I know of several former Mormons who have been won to truth, but I know of no Mormon missionaries who have been won during their mission.

Anyway, two are coming over to the "GL" house in about thirty minutes to "share." This should be interesting...

Have fun!!

I used to have a book on reaching Mormons, but don't know what became of it. They now give away bibles too, and are more slippery than ever.

I live in Mesa/Gilbert, AZ, which has the highest count of Mormons in a single town other than Orem, UT. In my 6 yrs here I never have seen any won. But I do that there was one MM that was from a oneness back ground and I went to church with his family. When he was on his mission he would visit oneness churches and almost get involved in them. So the mission leaders would move him around to other places to continue the mission. After a while they sent him home to his oneness family and he can back into the Apostolic faith. He still is today.

Being as I live in Mormon country I see alot of them. I have made up in my mind that when ever I see them I say hello. Also when they come to door I give them bottles of water. They are the nicest people. I have heard that at one time Mormon missionaries were asked to come to talk to a class at Gateway College of Evangelism. They would go talk to the evangelism class about their regement day to day. Matt Maddix said that it caused alot of conviction on the students.

I have some pretty close friends that are LDS Latter Day Saints. They are genuine and commetted to friends and family.

I have not, but I have had experience with them. One time I corned a couple who would not admit outright that they did not believe you could be saved with the bible only. In fact they ended up lying because they did not want to admit that I needed the BOM in order to be saved, but after carefully wording my questions they finally admitted that was the case.

They also believe that head Mormon dude in Utah is a prophet. I had one in VERY dramatic tones tell me "I...Have heard....the Voice....of The Prophet" (Picture William Shatner saying those words) and he expected me to believe him. I was debating with his partner on tongues.

Their oversea's missions training is crazy. They totally submerge into the culture they are going to. They are not allowed to speak any language but the language of the country. They attend class all day, and do work all evening.

Yup and thus ....they speak in new tongues.

Another thing they do....

We had some come to our apartment once years ago. A brother and I had just moved in and had no furniture in the living room. As we talked...or rather as I talked and one guy pretended to listen, the other one scoped out our apartment. Well they use things like that to get you in...they see what you need and try to meet that need. Of course most of us do that, but they do it by training as part of their missionary duties

Bro Haney tried to start a program to have our Youth go on 2 year Apostolic Missions tours. We so far cannot get the Summer Youth On Missions Tours filled. IF you can raise about $3000, and you fill out the forms, you can go. My friend went to Australia, and even 2 months away did not have the $$ Quick fundraising and she went. My cousin who now is a missionary in Bolivia went on Youth On Missions once too.

The US trips are even less money. Also some Districts sponsor YOM tours.
