Missionaries often have to face ardent critics of the Church, but what if these critics could see another side to these missionaries' service and sacrifice?
During fast and testimony meeting a brother slowly made his way to the podium as one sister wept while talking about her soon-to-be-missionary son.
She expressed how hard it was to be a mother in this situation, soon having to let her son go. “I would never let my child go on a mission if I didn’t know this Church was true.”
After the sister closed with “Amen,” this good brother took his place at the podium and turned to her and said, “Just wait until you drop him off at the MTC. That’s even harder.”
