Book on Mormon missionaries features Spring man
Spring native Nathan Childs is a featured subject in author Dan Harrington’s book “Who's at the Door? A Memoir of Me and the Missionaries.”
The book centers around Harrington’s true story of what it was like to befriend missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS) in Maine. He shares vignettes of his time with the missionaries, the LDS culture and reflections on faith and memories of his childhood catechism in the Roman Catholic Church.
Childs was one of the first two missionaries Harrington met and, according to the author, it was Child’s outgoing personality that helped him see missionaries in a whole new light.
“When we met, he had just started his two-year mission, and I was his first ‘investigator,’” said Harrington. “Investigators is the term Mormon missionaries use for the people they are teaching. He had wanted to be a missionary most of his life, but never expected to be featured in a book.”
Harrington’s book is available on Amazon..
