This is an admitted ad, but thought people would be interested in a book published by BYU. Chris Jessop, one of the first missionaries in Romania, is quoted. Some of you old timers may know him.
Hello, my name is Brett Breeden and I work for BYU Studies. We publish
books as well as a scholarly journal dealing with LDS topics. I believe
our most recent book, “Mormon Missionaries Enter Eastern Europe,” would be
of interest to former missionaries who visit your website. Here is a
brief summary of the book. Feel free to include it in its entirety, in
part, or, if you like, rewrite it for your website. If you would like
more information feel free to contact me at email@example.com. I
also have pictures of the author and the book cover if you are interested
in them and would be more than happy to email them to you.
“Mormon Missionaries Enter Eastern Europe,” a new book by Kahlile B. Mehr,
celebrates the first missionaries, humanitarian service workers and senior
couples who overcame daunting obstacles to establish the Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day Saints in Central and Eastern Europe during the
twentieth century. The book chronicles both the efforts made to bring the
Mormon message to Eastern Europe before World War I and the LDS Church’s
tremendous progress there since the end of the Cold War.
“Mormon Missionaries Enter Eastern Europe” also includes the fascinating
missionary account of Mischa Markow, the first Mormon missionary to enter
Eastern Europe a century ago. This autobiographical account charts
Markow’s experiences in eight eastern European countries where he preached
shortly after his own baptism as a Latter-day Saint in 1887.
