Mormon Missionary Evangelism Update

Hello, again dear friends! Yesterday, as I had mentioned, I had scheduled two Mormon missionaries to come and talk with me. Unfortunately, about an hour before hand, they let me know they weren’t going to be able to stop and talk. They could only bring me a pamphlet. When they arrived they wouldn’t come inside, and only stayed for a minute. They asked if someone else from their church could come by and talk with me. I agreed, but have yet to hear from them in regards to a time. I was disappointed that I was unable to sit and share the Gospel with them, however they both gladly took a Gospel tract from me. I wasn’t sure why they were unwilling, last minute, to stop and talk with me as previously planned. After researching it, I think it might be due to the fact that my husband works nights and would have been asleep. Wisely, the young men on missions are discouraged from being in homes alone with women.

Just as a side story, when I worked as a clerk in Downtown Dallas we had a man who tended our office plants. He was very, very happily married, and gushed about his wife and their many years together. Often times he would tell us stories of when he use to tend the household plants of mansions. It was the house wives, not the vegetation, that gave him the most trouble. Think Joseph and Potiphar’s wife. He eventually had to stop that line of work, and switched to industrial plant care. All that is to say that we ought to flee any form of temptation, and to that point, born again believers need to be teaching our young people to do the same. Do we guard our youth as vigorously as we ought to? While we thinking on these things, let us also pray for our pastors and elders, for fortitude against temptation.

I wish that I had more to report, that there was audio or some encouraging fruit. Two things I can say, for certain, came of all this. First, I was greatly helped by all your prayers and my own need for being in prayer. What a blessing it is, truly, to be reminded of my deep and desperate need for Gods strength! Second, I’ve not studied so rigorously in a very long time. Gods Word is a never ending well of truth. Galatians, just Galatians alone, is enough to refute every single cult. I hope to hear back from these gentlemen, and perhaps to have one of their young ladies come and hear to good news of the Gospel. I once believed I was earning my way to heaven. I believed I was saving myself through the sinners prayer. But I knew, I wouldn’t have dared to say the words out loud, but I knew I had no assurance of salvation. Praise God, He is mighty to save! What is impossible with man is possible with God, we cannot earn it, we could never be righteous, but Christ has bought us! He has died in our place, bore our sins and death, rose again for our justification, and has reconciled us to Himself. Oh, amazing grace, how sweet the sound!

My beloved brethren, brothers and sisters in Christ, I thank my God daily for you all. One day, in eternity, we will meet and throw our arms around one another’s necks. But, in this fallen world, God has already blessed me with your encouragement, and prayers! May the Lord we serve bless you, today, my friends. As always, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

  1. Thanks for the update, sister! I pray the Lord use the tract you handed out and work out all the circumstances to His glory! Yes, the enemy can certainly use situations to bring discredit to the Gospel. As you mention, pastors are targets especially.

    1. Yes, brother, I’ve considered how they’re keeping themselves from sin to earn their way to heaven. That’s obviously, Biblically, impossible. However, as believers it would seem that because we are saved by grace we ought to be working even harder. We have so much to be thankful for, and an infinite amount of reasons to work to bring God glory. Those attempting to work their way into heaven shouldn’t be out working those that have been given that gift freely. Does that make sense? It convicted me deeply, particularly in the area of redeeming the time, which I struggle with.

  2. I just downloaded a Kindle book on offer called Tell it all written by a woman in the mid 1800s about her experience in the church and specifically with the practice of polygamy that caused so much grief to the women. So interesting that this showed up in my feed. Good luck with the evangelism.

  3. Perhaps the church members they send to you will be women. Apparently they now send out women as well as men to be missionaries. I discovered this because I have been contacted twice by Mormon missionaries and in both cases they were women.

    1. That’s very interesting, brother! Did the women engage in discussion with you? I’ve heard they “black list” houses with believers they feel won’t convert.


      1. Yes, both couples discussed their teachings with me. Unfortunately I didn’t know a lot about Mormonism then so I don’t know how effective I was in presenting the truth.

  4. Meant to comment sooner as I’ve praying for you and your encounters with the Mormon missionaries. Even though I studied about them in the past about a year ago I stumbled upon the testimonies of Michael and Lynn Wilder and their children. It was their son’s conversion to Christianity that the Lord used to lead the whole family out of this cult. They were very involved and loyal to this ‘faith’ and yet when faced with the true Gospel, well, the Spirit convicted and saved!!
    The Youtube interviews are excellent and I appreciated listening to them since my reading time is stretched. Their books sound very, very informative for resources … always pointing to the Scriptures.

    1. I’m so glad you mentioned this, I’m planning on posting Michaels testimony this Wednesday! It was so encouraging, and emotional. I was listening to a podcast interview with his mom and then randomly saw his testimony on my YouTube feed later that day. Gods Providence is so wonderful, I was incredibly emboldened by their testimony to continue to peruse the Mormon missionaries with the Gospel! Thank you for sharing this, my friend.
