Two Albuquerque Mormon missionaries were held captive by someone they were trying to witness to last week.

Elder Zuniga Delgado and Elder Michael Whitaker were witnessing in their apartment complex off of Montgomery Boulevard NE last Tuesday. They met a man at a bus stop named Erwin Smith who invited them into his home to discuss helping him move, a service the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints offers to many.
