Independent Lens Episode: "Get the Fire! Young Mormon Missionaries Abroad"

Season 5, Episode 9
Episode Synopsis: “Get the Fire! Young Mormon Missionaries Abroad” follows a group of young men from 1999 to 2001as they evangelize in southern Germany, and reflect on their lives and missions. But before they leave there's the Mission Training Center in Utah. It's “boot camp moved to the celestial kingdom,” says a former missionary, one of several who offer occasional skeptical comments. And the missionaries face skepticism (or indifference) from most of the Germans they meet. But it doesn't seem to faze them.
