First Aired: December 23, 2003

“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.

And the missionaries face skepticism (or indifference) from most of the Germans they meet. But it doesn't seem to faze them.
