Follow the journey of two missionaries who dream of serving in Orlando, only to be told they must serve in Uganda. While in Africa, they share their scriptures with the local community. The locals don’t care about what they have to say: AIDS, famine, and warlords pose a more significant threat. Join Elder Price and Elder Cunningham as they spread the gospel and attempt to make every day a latter day.
