Jesse Armstrong is currently employed at the Missionary Training Centre in New Zealand, and thought he was pretty ‘missionary savvy’.  That was until he met the missionaries in San Diego, California.

These missionaries didn’t have recognizable name badges and they certainly didn’t sound anything like any of the missionaries he trained back in New Zealand. These, very interesting missionaries were speaking Arabic and are assigned specifically to teach Arabic speaking ‘friends of our faith’ in approved missions.

Jesse said:

“Check this out…I’m sitting here watching missionaries being taught the Arabic Language. They are teaching the Chaldean people who descend from Abraham! These are the people whom the Saviour walked amongst in his day…How cool is that?!?! They told me that there are less than 100 of them [Arabic speaking missionaries] around the world”.

The following two tabs change content below.


  1. There are two member families living in Duhok, Kurdistan, Iraq. Both families speak Aramaic and Arabic fluently. Just last month three more people were baptized into The Church in Iraq. These members were Chaldean Christians that converted to the Gospel while they were in Jordan during the second Iraq war. The work goes forward even in the war torn Middle East.
    There are LDS Charity missionaries serving in Erbil, Kurdistan, Iraq. They have done a lot of work with the Syrian and Christian refugees fleeing ISIS.

  2. Andrew Greer….the missionary speaking Arabic, is my grandson. The fact that he is even on a mission is a miracle. Without going into details in this forum, this boy being on a mission, speaking Arabic, living the Gospel is a true miracle as his life was totally different prior to his making this decision. We call him our “miracle boy” in our family. Let me testify that prayers work!!!
