Dewain was a convert who loved the gospel. When his good friend was preparing to leave for her mission, he decided he wanted to serve one also. The only problem was that he was in the military, and they would not release him. This didn't stop Dewain. It just caused him to get creative. He made the decision that his next deployment would become his own mission and he prepared for it as such.
Listen in as Dewain shares with us his life experiences and how he shows that missionary is a frame of mind, and available to us at all times. Enjoy!
This is a story you won't hear often in the LDS/Mormon Church. A Baptist preacher converts to the LDS faith and becomes a Mormon teacher, high councilman, ward missionary leader, etc....

Junior shares much insight into the life, experiences and feelings of missionaries in this area from the amazing sights, food, and people to the dark and empty times.
Please enjoy this episode and share!
James Curran was frustrated on his mission that members of the church were so disinterested to share the gospel. He couldn't understand why they lacked a passion to share something that is the most valuable gift. He made a promise to himself that he would never become complacent, and the beginnings of 'James The Mormon' was born. James uses his love and talent of rap music to show his audience that Mormons are diverse regular people... continuing missionary work long after his mission.
Listen in as James shares with us insight into his life and his passion for being proud of his Mormon beliefs.

Addie James started her young life with no religion. Upon moving to a new neighborhood she made friends with Mormon girls who introduced her to Young Women's Girls Camp. That was her extent of Mormonism... until the Mormon missionaries walked by their front yards.
Addie began her journey into her new religion with faith and patience. While definitely not a smooth road, as it usually isn't for converts (or members!) Addie made the eventual decision to serve an LDS mission.
Addie was shocked and thrilled to read Samara, Russia on her mission call!
Listen in as Addie shares with us her experiences and feelings from her life and mission. Enjoy!
