Behold! A typical missionary from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints! (better known as mormons) This is what we call an elder, which is a title used in the bible to describe a teacher. Usually they are just young 19 yr-old boys walking around in a suit and tie, but they sincerely are only trying to bless the lives of others. And the only reason why they are dressed up in the first place is because everyone needs to be able to recognize them as representatives of Christ. So don’t be afraid of them when you see one! In fact, go up and say hi! Make them feel appreciated for all they’re sacrificing to serve the Lord. They won’t bite. They are basically just like me (a sister missionary) in male form. And the only thing we are trying to do as we sacrifice 18 months to 2 years of our lives is help others feel the same joy we feel.
