Brady Schvaneveldt and Shawn Moffett talk to their mothers twice a year — Christmas and Mother’s Day. Neither will see their families until 2012.
The two 19-year-olds, Elder Schvaneveldt, top, from Lehi, Utah, Elder Moffett from Norman, Okla., are missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ and Latter Day Saints. They are recognizable — two matching, impeccably dressed teenagers biking around town and handing out literature on their church.
“A lot of people think ‘Elder’ is our first name,” Elder Moffett says, pointing to his nametag pinned to his short-sleeve white button up shirt. “Then they look at the other guy — ‘Your name is Elder too? Are you guys brothers?’”
