missionaries

In an episode of his docu-series, Inside Man, CNN correspondent Morgan Spurlock sets out to find religion–or at least to better understand it.

The full episode of Inside Man, which originally aired on television in May of last year, was recently released on Netflix’s streaming service. And in it, Spurlock teams up with a pair of LDS missionaries to better understand how the Latter-day Saint religion is one of the fastest-growing in the world. (He cites that, in the last 40 years, the Church has grown from 3 million to 15 million members worldwide.)

“Elder Bishop and Elder Tagaloa are Mormon missionaries,” he says, “the secret weapon behind the Church of [Jesus Christ of] Latter-day Saints’ explosive growth.”

After a brief chat with the duo, Elder Tagaloa shares their agenda for the day: “We are going to start off doing a little tracting. It’s door-to-door contacting, seeing if anyone’s interested in the message that we share.” The elder makes sure to be clear about what that entails, and goes on to explain, “If people say ‘no,’ we don’t want to try to force anything on them because we’re not here to do that.”
