Re: There is no covid restriction in any country regarding missionaries

I often feel like it would be easier to get into the USA in the back of a truck or a shipping container than through an airport and doing everything by the book. American immigration control is nuts for foreigners. They fingerprint and photograph you now apparently as if you are a criminal. I doubt...

Oaks stood up and said he likes to show up at wards randomly when he doesn't have an assignment because he likes to "see the real church" that he doesn't get to see when he's at stake conferences. Obviously I don't love the individual but I respect that. I'm sure he's aware there is a dee...
