  • Baptizing Saddam Hussein

    Did any of yall ever get asked by investigators why you were baptizing Saddam Hussein, based on this missionary "Flipcharts" image from yesteryear? I did, about once a week or so.

      Yeah I thought it was super cool that Danny Ainge got that experience even though he didn't get to serve...

        I do remember thinking that, but I think I used flip charts about 3 times on my mission total.

        I was out shortly after flip charts transitioned from a three ring binder (am I remembering that right?) to the smaller, self-contained booklet.

        What about that pic that got used a lot that I think was supposed to be a man praying but actually looked like a man who just got hit in the head with a golf ball? I couldn't find it anywhere.

          I don't remember any investigators asking about it, but we definitely joked about it as missionaries.

            I remember the day he was captured hiding in a spider hole. He was held just down the road from several hundred priesthood holders--oh so close!

              Disappointing. I thought this thread was going to be about proxy baptism.

                Ha, me too. However, I guess that means we still have a shot at getting brother Hussein's name next time we hit the baptistry.
                Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

                  Wow I never once made the connection until now. And no Puerto Rican did either. In my defense my mission was during his first less well-known war.

                    Look at Waup - going from inactive to bar chaser.

                      My mission was one of the ones that invented flip charts. We had to make our own when I first got there. That was back in the day where you memorized the "Mr. Brown" lessons. Except ours was "Señor Gomez". The missionary department came out with new lessons that included a new flip chart about six months before my time was up. We didn't get the Spanish version until just a few weeks before I went home. Hard for me to get motivated to memorize a new set at that point. But I did all I could to help my companion with his memorization task.

                        No.
                        "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf
