Did you become disillusioned with the LDS Church while serving?
nMore people investigate the church for its welfare program than you might think. One family had a lot of problems, so they flagged us down, we baptized them and, when I returned to Salt Lake City, I saw their kids at the Travelers Aid Society. You have this idea that the gospel will better lives and, while I can’t say their lives were worse, they weren’t in a good place. It was just disturbing.
