  1. Steve, you should read the article I posted in my comment above. Missionary work was shut down from 1939 until 1945 during WWII. At least in 2020 there were tens of thousands of missionaries still converting people through online means. The internet and social media were obviously not available during 1939-1945.
  2. Scott, I was able to find this article about missionary work in WWII. It looks like LDS missionaries were evacuated starting in 1939 from all foreign countries until the end of WWII in 1945: https://scholarsarchive.byu.edu/etd/4542/
  3. Steve, I could be mistaken but I was under the impression all missionary age men would have been subject to the mandatory military draft during the years of WWII? And, I don’t think many countries would have accepted our missionaries had that not been the case? Large parts of the world were at war with each other.
  4. Scott, during WWII what was our missionary program like compared to 2020?
  5. I think a good comparison would be to look at the numbers from 1919 and 1920. Those were the years the Spanish Flu was in full pandemic mode. Also, you could look and compare the numbers during the years of WWI and WWII when we didn’t have much, if any, missionary program and many nations were completely shut off from access. Similarly, the Korean War or Vietnam years.
  6. It was a great interview. Thanks Smac. I haven’t read Don’s book yet but I plan on it. I’ve only heard good things about it. My only complaint is that Don is wearing the same shirt he wears in the Witness film trailer. Don, please PM me your address and I will send you a couple of different interview shirts. 🙂
  7. Stemelbow, was that video really from Kwaku El? Anyone here who hasn’t watched the video I would highly encourage you not to. It’s very violent and disturbing. it has a soldier that is named FAIR beating to death with a bat in gruesome detail a soldier named John Dehlin. It is one of the most gruesome and disturbing things I’ve seen. Please do not watch. I sincerely hope that FAIR and Kwaku El had nothing to do with this video.
  8. Maybe this explains why Ahab’s relatives in England never receive the Christmas presents he’s been sending for years.
  9. Scott, are you trying to tell us you’re starting a new 10 year countdown clock? Mike Reed will be happy. 😁
  10. From an academic perspective I wonder if it would be better for Kent Jackson to base his upcoming paper on the hundreds of examples in Professor Wayment’s paper, rather than just the 16 examples?
  11. I wonder how many 8 year olds are truly capable of understanding the ramifications and magnitude of their baptismal covenants?
  12. Not to derail, but Roger K. Young is still very involved with AVOW. There are 19 discussion threads on AVOW so far this month started by Roger. He is one of the most active participants and has been for the last 10-12 years.
