SALT LAKE CITY — For many missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Christmas season is a time of increased goodwill, extra service and, sometimes, too much of a good thing.
Sisters Goodwin and Custer, two missionaries serving in the Maryland Baltimore Mission, changed the words to the well-known Christmas song "The Twelve Days of Christmas," singing that it was "the mission" that gave them gifts, not the "true love" of the original version.
In the sister missionaries' version, they received, among other gifts, 12 doors of knocking, 11 dogs a-chasing, nine homemade goodies, seven Thanksgiving dinners and five Books of Mormons — a gift the missionaries gleefully belt out on each of the choruses.
According to mormonnewsroom.org, there are currently 70,946 missionaries serving in 422 missions worldwide.
