SALT LAKE CITY, UT
A couple of Reimers from Friesenschanzenfeld have decided to leave the farm behind and go door-to-door in Salt Lake City this summer.
“We’re hoping to recruit as many Mormons as possible,” said Reimer. “If not, then we’re at least hoping to wake them up real early on Saturday morning like they always do to me back home in Friesenschanzenfeld.”
Reimer said he got the idea after being rudely interrupted one Sunday during his afternoon meddachschlop.
“They ring the doorbell at 2:15 while Martha and I are having our weekly meddachschlop,” explained Reimer. “Let me tell you. It was not appreciated! I decided right then and there that I was going to do unto others as they’ve done unto me!”
On the Reimers very first outing they were met at the front door by a pair of Pentecostals, Evangelicals, Presbyterians, Baptists, and Lutherans, all of whom seem to have the same idea.
“Oba, now we’re all standing at the door and that poor Mormon family is going to have to choose,” said Reimer. “I made a pretty good case for switching to the Mennonite faith, but they’ve got to make their own decision.”
In the end the Mormon family decided to stay with their own religion, especially since all the other groups didn’t offer any fancy new holy books.
