Rather than write my normal New Year's Resolution post today, I am going to provide links to two incredible posts about missionaries in Africa. The articles are NOT a direct response to the Book of Mormon musical that is receiving such attention right now, but they were writen with that musical and its misrepresentation of Mormon missionaries in Africa in mind.
The articles really are amazing. It would be wonderful if everyone inside and outside the LDS Church could read them:
