Young adults typically leave home to study, to work or to travel. But missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints leave home, sometimes across the world, to serve others and teach about Jesus Christ. A new video from the UK Mormon Newsroom follows two of these young Mormon missionaries, giving a glimpse into what missionaries do and why they do it.
Sister Jasmine Harouny from Utah, USA, and Sister Abby McCrary from Colorado, USA, are living in Germany for 18 months with one goal: to help people learn about Jesus Christ. They each received only six weeks of language training in the United States before going to Germany to serve.
“I am here in Germany because the gospel has brought me so much joy and I want to share it with other people,” says Sister McCrary.
