Transformations: A Mormon Mission, 1957-1959

Transformations: A Mormon Mission, 1957-1959 I look back on my mission to Great Britain and reflect aloud about significant changes in the direction of the missionary program of the Church itself during that period, changes that allowed a church of just under a million to expand to ten million in 40 years. Important things were also lost including the assumption that missions were a least as much about creating future Church leaders as converting future followers. I include vivid images of the incomparable, often outrageous, mission president who initiated those changes, and observations about how my mission prepared me to be found by my proper mate at BYU.
