From early morning companion scripture study to afternoons of constant door-knocking, missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints work hard all day.

According to a new infographic from the Mormon Newsroom, missionaries dedicate more than 12 million hours of service to help the community each year and pay an average of $10,000 to fund their full-time service.

Some may think these elders and sisters don't have any fun, but these videos demonstrate the talented, creative and even goofy sides of these young men and women who have dedicated their lives to sharing the gospel.

Here are 10 of our favorite musical missionary YouTube videos.

These missionaries are soooo darned cute, and they sound awesome. God must smiles. Bless these young men.

What about the Conference where the MTC missionaries sang that included David Archeleta? that had to have had many views on You-tube.

PA Rock Man

I served a mission too and engaged in many goofy shenanigans like these, so I understand thats what missionaries do. I don't mind that too much, but making a music video and dancing around while driving a car on the open road is pretty foolish, if you ask me.

Is it Sister Mack with the Ukalele? She has a gorgeous voice! Where can we hear more of her?


I just wanted to add that there is a Part II to this video, in which they finish the song and beautifully. Unfortunately, I can't post the link here because of the site rules regarding posting links in the comments section. I found it, though, by going directly to YouTube and looking on the right side where they show related videos. The second half of the video only has a little over five-hundred views, probably because nobody noticed it.
