*Mutual Respect

Please remember that the young Mormon missionaries that you see in black communities, in their dark suits and ties, white shirts and black name-tags, riding on their bikes, or walking, or riding the bus, are there to bless you and your family, and other black folks, with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His Priesthood. They are not paid, but have sacrificed two years of their lives to bring these blessings to all who will receive them; including black folks. Even if you donít want to hear their message, they deserve and need your respect, and they will always show great love and respect to you; no matter who you are.
