“Meet the Mormons: In Theaters 10/10/14,” New Era, Oct. 2014, 39
When you picture a mom from Costa Rica, a dad from Atlanta, Georgia, USA, and a Primary teacher from Annapolis, Maryland, USA, what comes to mind? Did you immediately think of a step dancer, a college football head coach, and a kickboxer? Probably not. But guess what? They’re each featured in the Church’s first-ever motion picture to debut in movie theaters, premiering October 10, 2014. (Can you guess which of those three descriptions matches each of the three people?)
The new film, Meet the Mormons, takes you on an around-the-world tour of six families who meet their daily struggles by exercising faith in Jesus Christ, which leads them to do great things. And because of that faith, they each have extraordinary stories to tell—stories that make for one inspiring movie.
So, how can you join in the fun of the upcoming movie release? Here are four ideas to get you started:
