Harvest: Memoir of a Mormon Missionary
Rated 5.00/5 based
on 1 reviews
An interesting and insightful read about being a Mormon missionary in Russia. More
At the age of nineteen, Jacob Young left his family's Idaho wheat farm for Samara, Russia, where he had been assigned to serve as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
He quickly learned how to approach strangers in thick fur coats and deliver a thirty minute message about God. He learned how to knock on door after dreary door and testify with a conviction he did not always feel. He learned to love the Russian language, the Russian people, and the inside of a Russian jail.
But the most important lessons may have been the things he never learned.
