Free Prayers from Latter-day Saint Missionaries

Narrative or description

A typical missionary experience for young men in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints would involve a lot of person to person interaction through knocking on doors, approaching people on the street, and being in strangers home. With COVID-19 who wants strangers in their home, right? These missionaries found a creative way to still try to serve the community they have been assigned to.

When we drove past they were dancing and twirling their homemade signs, waving at cars, and encouraging people to honk. They were on one of the busiest intersections in the city.
