God’s Army: Mormon Missionaries

Clip: Season 4 | 9m 12s

Missionary work is something of a rite of passage in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Over the course of 18 months to two years, young men and women will work 16 hours a day, six days a week. On average, each will convert ten persons during that period. But with 60,000 missionaries in the field, that is enough to produce 300,000 new converts a year.
