Spent a lot of time recently talking to a mormon lad. Mostly because we were both playing the same game and would end up talking to each other.

I teased him mercilessly, of course. But he took it well. And I have to say that I ended up with a great deal of respect for him, and for the strength of his beliefs.

Not an easy path to walk, but his determination to be the best person he could be within his own tradition, was admirable.

And never once did he try to convert me. I told him early on not to try, and that he would have to wait till I was dead and convert me retrospectively.
That made him laugh, and he assure me he would. lol.

Much respect to that young man and his faith.

Ditto Newt.

We used to get Elder wood and Elder graham knock on our door in the mid seventies, with pretty much the same situation. The initial meeting was scoping us out and the mistake of offering them a cuppa tea. Hahaha...hmmmm.

These two were both farm lads and because we had, at the time, a small goat dairy, conversation got smelly and hairy quickly. They were both lovely lads and I learnt a lot from them.

We sort of made it a regular thing for the duration of their mission.

As I you Newt, I have much respect for these young men.
