Did you encounter any hostility on your mission?
nI’d carry a hardback Book of Mormon instead of the flimsy paperback ones because they were so much nicer. My companion and I were talking and not paying much attention when we walked up to a porch with a huge sleeping dog. The dog woke up and started to freak out and growl because we had snuck up on him. So, I took my Book of Mormon by the spine, raised it above me and came down square on the dog’s head. That dog was smote with the stick of Joseph! It was the only action my Book of Mormon saw that day.
