The Church of Jesus as part of the missionary program; Joseph Smith's formula helps build the kingdom By NOEL BUCHANAN Herald Religion Writer Joseph Smith's am- bassadors lead a spartan life building God's kingdom ac- cording to Mormon formula in Southern Alberta. Elder Gary Karpowitz, 21, from Salt Lake City, and Elder Rick Bennett, 21, from Holden, Utah, recently ex- plained the mission program of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. "At 19, each member makes his own decision about mis- sionary Elder Kar- powitz said. After application papers have been completed and an interview with the member's bishop and stake president concluded, the forms go to Salt Lake City. The First Presidency of the church reviews the applica- tion and, following prayer, decides on where the mission appointment will be located. "There are 215 full-time missionaries in Mr. Karpowitz said. Many can- didates come from Utah, California and Idaho although the line-up recently included missionaries from Ontario, Manitoba and Caroline. Alta. Mission preparation can begin as early as elementary school years. Latter-day Saint children attend Primary, a child's weekday program, .and Sunday school. Training con- tinues at 12 years when boys. are admitted to the Aaronic priesthood and further ex- pands from Grade 9 onwards when members can par- language. Wherever assigned, convert baptisms are the goal of all Mormon Missionaries. The standard two-year term for men is trimmed to 18 months in the case of female missionaries. Of 16 full-time workers in Lethbridge, two sisters are among the team. A stake mission president receives a call to a three-year term supervising missionary work in a given district. Mr. Karpowitz is zone leader and Mr. Bennett his assistant currently in Lethbridge. Mission contacts are made through member referrals, participation in area LDS events, from signatures in the Salt Lake Temple guest book and through "tracting" calling door-to-door. Each local mission presi- dent forwards to Salt Lake City a regular estimate of powitz said. For six hours a week, the missionary can engage in practical physical help a house move, cutting lawn for an elderly person or chores for the incapacitated. Saturday is preparation day. Each missionary gets time off to relax, shop for food and at- tend to personal laundry and other tasks. Mormon missionaries are self-supporting, raising their own funds for fares and ac- commodation for the duration of their mission. If a personal problem arises, a missionary can request release from the program. But such circum- stances are a rare incident, Mr. Karpowitz claimed. Missionaries travel in pairs partly as good diplomacy and partly in keeping with a com- mand of Jesus recorded in Luke Conceeding a lot of LDS mission work is performed among persons with some ex- isting knowledge of Christianity, Mr. Karpowitz claimed there .is indigenous LDS mission work overseas in such lands as .Tonga and Japan. Total church, membership, according to figures issued from Salt Lake City last February, 'is 3.3 million. A Southern Alberta breakdown at the same time showed Lethbridge with members; Cardston, Raymond, and Taber, John Whitehead is the Lethbridge stake mission president Raymond Beckham of Calgary supervises the Alberta-Saskatchewan mis- sion. Before appointment to the field, Mormon missionaries spend six days in Salt Lake City for a "spiritual uplift, meeting church authorities and visiting the Mr. Karpowitz said. Request Some candidates request appointment to a specific geographic location, citing ap- titude or special interest reasons in their application. However, the final decision rests with chord) authorities. If being posted overseas, up to two months win likely be spent at an LDS college or un- iversity learning a foreign with only two in Medicine .Hat because there are more members here to help obtain referrals, Mr. Karpowitz said. A typical day starts at a.m. with breakfast and wash- up before a two-hour period. "You learn a lot about washing dishes and cooking your own food and keeping your apartment Mr. Bennett said. Mormon mis- sionaries claim a good relationship with 'most landlords, usually non- members who have come to appreciate that the dosely- cropped young men wearing white shirts and neat dress suits can be depended on as good tenants. At a.m. proselytizing starts and continues until noon. Referrals, missionary friendship, demonstration of the Family Home Evening program, tracting and a few calls on members occupy the time. "The afternoon may include hospital visits, mall displays and more Mr. Bennett continued. In the evening, the missionaries attend local ward meetings, firesides and regular Family Home Even- ing groups. Around the world there are Mormon missionaries at work each day, Mr. Kar- Home League women WM? Nearly. 100 present and former members of Lethbridge Salvation Army Home League participated here this week in a reunion marking 70 years of Southern Alberta activity. Maj.
