The Sister Missionaries, Scene 3

Scene 3 - Polygamists – (Person - Grandpa)
Missionaries are at another door.

M1 – Hello, we're from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints. We'd like to tell you about . . . .

Person – The who? I don't think I've ever heard of them.

M2 – The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints.

M1 – Have you heard of the Mormons?

Person – Oh, the Mormons. You're the ones who have more than one wife. Are you both married to the same man?

M1 – No. We don't practice polygamy. It is against the law. We are missionaries for our church.

Person – I though only boys were missionaries. I always see those two guys riding around on the bikes.

M2 – No, women can be missionaries too. In fact, . . .

Person – Would you like to come in and have a cup of coffee?

M1 – We would like to come in, but we don't drink coffee. The Lord has revieled to our prophets that coffee is bad for us.

Person – A prophet? Like that guy who found the golden book. Where is that thing kept, anyway?

M2 – We call them the Golden Plates. The prophet Josheph Smith translated them, and then they were taken back.

Person - That's too bad. With the price of gold these days, they would be worth a fortune.

M1 – We believe the message it contains is more priceless than gold. It can help us return to our Heavenly Father to live with him forever.

Person – Speaking of forever, I don't much time tonight. Can you come back latter?

M1 – Well, we're from the Church of Latterday Saints. I guess we can come back “latter”.

M2 – Thanks. We’ll try back latter.

Next time we'll practice a bit before hand. Grandma was the only one who learned her lines.
