Seattle missionaries used their art skills to share the message of the plan of salvation in a unique way. The missionaries went to a free art wall at the Edge Skate Park in Redmond, WA and spray painted the plan of salvation. The art is meant to prompt curiosity in onlookers and as a conversation starter for missionaries. The video above shows the missionaries’ project from start to finish.
We found some other unique missionary efforts from around the world using art as a medium to get people to stop and ask questions about the Church and provide a way for missionaries, and members, to teach the message of the restoration.
New York City:
Missionaries in the New York, New York North Mission took to the plaza in Union Square to teach the importance of family history.
Banksa Bystrica, Slovakia:
These missionaries wrote out the First Vision account of Joseph Smith and drew a chalk art representation of the event to show how God called another prophet.
In a park in Cincinnati, Ohio, missionaries mapped out the plan of salvation along the bike path. They described each part of the plan and what it means for God’s children.
Plzen, Czech Republic:
Young Single Adults in the Plzen branch of the Czech Republic got together to depict the different dispensations of when God has had a prophet on the Earth. They had missionary opportunities teaching people who stopped and looked that God had called another living prophet to guide the Church today.
These two missionaries made several chalk murals on the roads of Moscow depicting significant events of the Book of Mormon. The picture shows Christ’s appearance to the Nephites on the American continent after his resurrection. The missionaries were able to use the pictures as a reference to explain the purposes of the Book of Mormon and give them away.
