Summary
Briefly discusses missionaries as a folk group and explains that missionaries enjoy sharing stories about their experiences with other missionaries. Includes stories about initiation pranks played on new missionaries, stories about disobedient missionaries who suffer some kind of mishap or obedient missionaries who receive blessings. Also includes stories about tragedies that happen to people who reject the missionaries' message or blessings that come to people who accept the message. These stories serve three major purposes: first, helping missionaries feel part of the larger group, second, motivating them to follow the rules, and third, giving them a sense of comfort and a hope of success. Concludes that these stories are important to missionaries, whether or not they are true
