The other morning I woke up with the thought that I should use color coded index cards to organize my information.
Special Conference of the elders of Israel, to commence, Saturday 28 Aug. 10 a.m. at the Tabernacle. All elders, within reach, read and attend.
From the Special Missionary Conference of 1852, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormons) called about 100 men to serve missions all over the world. In the next few posts I will share with you what I’m learning. If you have your own questions, comments, reactions, please post.
I have a manuscript of ten double spaced pages that I’m workshopping with a writer’s group in Bethesda. I’m pretty nervous about their criticism because it is a story about a Mormon missionary. I welcome the criticism because I want to get the feeling from an outsider’s point of view what the perception of this kind of story is and how it rankles or appeals. We’ll see.
I ply through original letters and journals recreating the early missionaries’ experiences in Asia. I also read historical accounts of the world in which these missionaries found themselves. In the next few posts, I would like to pose questions that surface. Please feel free to comment if you have insight into these quandaries.
