A writer on Patheos, a website devoted to religion and spirituality, shared an experience she had with missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on her blog, The White Hindu.

In her Feb. 3 post, Ambaa tells of the friendship she formed with two sister missionaries and details their discussions.

"The last time a pair of Mormon missionaries knocked on my door (two years ago), I was not in the mood. ... But last week two girls knocked on my door, and I didn’t feel as forceful or annoyed as I had before," Ambaa wrote.

"The visit was completely delightful. We told them about our beliefs, and they told us about theirs. It never felt like preaching. They seemed to respect that we weren’t lost souls yearning for meaning. They were so young, and they seemed to approach the whole thing with the air of truly learning about other people and other beliefs."
