The Mission Documentary: LDS Missionaries in Finland
The Mission is a new documentary DVD about LDS missionaries in Finland.
It is a fascinating and moving look at the lives of these young people as they serve their church in a foreign country.
The film follows four missionaries from their training in Utah to their missions in Finland.
2022 Sundance Film Festival Documentary
We see them struggle with being immersed in a new culture, and, also, the daily rejections they inevitably receive throughout their task.
However, we also see their faith, their dedication, and their love for the people they are trying to reach.
The Mission is an inspiring and thought-provoking film, so it will stay with you long after you watch it.
I recommend it to anyone interested in religion, culture, or the human spirit.

Every year, over 60,000 young missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are sent across the world to preach their gospel.
Sundance Film Festival selection THE MISSION follows four Latter-day Saints teenagers from their training in Utah to their missions in Finland, home of Europe’s most private and secular people.
Tania Anderson’s film tracks these wide-eyed, impassioned teens on their two-year rite of passage.
They struggle with being immersed in a new culture, and, also, the daily rejections they inevitably receive throughout their task.
The filmmakers were granted total access by the Church, so the film is a sensitive observational documentary detailing the challenges and triumphs of these missionaries’ journeys.
