Even though they get to travel the world, anyone who's served a mission knows it's not all fun and games. Over 80,000 Elders and Sisters around the world put in grueling 16-hour work days for 18 to 24 months—without a break. They don't watch movies, date, or even see their families. However, along with the sacred nature of the work they perform and the seriousness with which they go about it, they come up with some creative ways to have a good time. These viral videos prove that there's more to Mormon missionaries than meets the eye!
