20-year-old Mormon Missionaries

Last Fridy, I followed two mormon missionaries as my assignment for the Dawn to Dusk project of VisCom. Patty and Jones are the only two mormon missionaries in Athens County, both of which are only 20. 

Never watching TV or reading newspapers to prevent distraction, they study the Bible in the morning and preach around in Athens County in the afternoon. What they do most is to knock on people's doors and ask if they are interested in knowing more about the mormon belief. They are self-funded to do the mission. Patty got some support from his families who are all mormons while Jones saved up to be a missionary. They will go back to college after they finish their mission.
