Strand left the show to join the West End Production. Strand was replaced by Conner Pierson on January 3, Clay had been with the tour since Novemberand worked his way up from ensemble, to Elder Price Understudy, and Elder Price Standby, before finally assuming the role. He was replaced by Andy Huntington Jones. Ryan Bondy and A. Holmes reprised their roles as Elder Price and Elder Cunningham respectively.

Price believes if he prays enough, he will be sent to Orlando, Florida for his two-year mission, but he and Elder Arnold Cunningham, an insecure, compulsive liar, are instead sent to Uganda as a pair "Two by Two". Price is sure he is destined to do something incredible, while Cunningham is just happy to follow.

Upon arrival in northern Ugandathe two are robbed by soldiers of a local warlord, General Butt-Fucking Naked. They are welcomed to the village where a group of villagers share their daily reality of living in appalling conditions while being ruled by the General. To make their lives seem better, the villagers repeat a phrase that translates as "Fuck you, God! Price and Cunningham are led to their living quarters by a young woman named Nabulungi, where they meet their fellow missionaries stationed in the area, who have been unable to convert anyone to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Elder McKinley, the district leader, teaches Price and Cunningham a widely accepted method of dealing with the negative and upsetting feelings "Turn It Off". Though Price is riddled with anxiety, Cunningham reassures him that he will succeed and that, as his partner, Cunningham will be by his side no matter what "I Am Here for You".

Price is certain he can succeed where the other elders have failed, teaching the villagers about Joseph Smith through a song that begins as a tribute to Smith but eventually descends into a tribute by Price to himself "All-American Prophet".

The General arrives and announces his demand for the genital mutilation of all female villagers. After a villager protests, the General executes him.

Safely hiding back at home, Nabulungi, moved by Price's promise of an earthly paradisedreams of a better life in a new land "Sal Tlay Ka Siti". The mission president has requested a progress report on their mission. Shocked by the execution and the reality of Africa, Price decides to abandon his mission and requests a transfer to Orlando, while Cunningham, ever loyal, assures Price he will follow him anywhere "I Am Here for You [Reprise]".

However, Price unceremoniously dumps him as mission companion. Cunningham is crushed and alone, but when Nabulungi comes to him, wanting to learn more about the Book of Mormon and having convinced the villagers to listen to him, Cunningham finds the courage to take control of the situation "Man Up". Act II[ edit ] When his audience begins to get frustrated and leave, Cunningham quickly makes up stories by combining what he knows of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saint doctrine with pieces of science fiction and fantasy.

Cunningham's conscience personified by his father, Joseph Smith, hobbitsLt. UhuraDarth Vaderand Yoda admonishes him, but he rationalizes that if it helps people, it surely cannot be wrong "Making Things Up Again". Price joyfully arrives in Orlando but then realizes that he is dreaming. He is reminded of the nightmares of hell he had as a child and panics when his nightmare begins once again "Spooky Mormon Hell Dream".

Price awakens and decides to re-commit to his mission. Cunningham announces several Ugandans are interested in the church. McKinley points out that unless the General is dealt with, no one will convert. Price, seeing the chance to prove his worth, sets off on the "mission he was born to do". After re-affirming his faith, he confronts the General determined to convert him "I Believe".

The General is unimpressed and drags Price away. Cunningham concludes his preaching and the villagers are baptizedwith Nabulungi and Cunningham sharing a tender moment as they do "Baptize Me".

The missionaries feel oneness with the people of Uganda and celebrate "I Am Africa". Price is seen in the village doctor's office, having the Book of Mormon removed from his rectum.

Meanwhile, the General hears of the villagers' conversion and resolves to kill them all. Having lost his faith, Price drowns his sorrows in coffee. Cunningham finds Price and tells him they need to at least act like mission companions, as the mission president is coming to visit the Ugandan mission. Price reflects on all the broken promises the Church, his parents, his friends and life in general made to him.

Nabulungi and the villagers perform a pageant to "honor [them] with the story of Joseph Smiththe American Moses " "Joseph Smith American Moses"which reflects the distortions put forth by Cunningham, such as making love to a frog to cure their AIDS. The mission president is appalled, orders all the missionaries to go home, and tells Nabulungi that she and her fellow villagers are not members.

Nabulungi, heartbroken at the thought that she will never reach paradise, curses God for forsaking her "Hasa Diga Eebowai [Reprise]". Price has had an epiphany and realizes Cunningham was right all along: The General arrives, and Nabulungi is ready to submit to him, telling the villagers that the stories Cunningham told them are untrue. To her shock, they respond that they have always known that the stories were metaphors rather than the literal truth.

Price and Cunningham arrive just in time to use Cunningham's lies of the latter being resurrected after being eaten by lions to scare the General and his men away.

Price rallies the members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and the Ugandans to work together to make this their paradise. I think it is the opposite! I talk with my friends about all issues whether it is politics, social issues, religious topics, etc. In the end, we are laughing I think we would look at issues quite differently if we have the chance to see it through different eyes. Friendship is so important and such a treasure in life.

I can't think of a better way to serve and love the Lord. In a world where we can be anything, to me being a friend is pretty priceless. Who was Joseph Smith?

Dawn Armstrong Copy and Share I like to answer this question specifically because so many not of our faith are confused about the role he plays in our church. Joseph Smith founded our church. We in no way worship Joseph Smith, although we very much honor him for all of the sacrifices he made to bring the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ back to the earth.

He gave his life to this cause, and that sacrifice deserves honor and respect. The foundation of our faith is Jesus Christ, he suffered bled and die to save us all. We believe that his sacrifice made it possible for us to be forgiven for our sins and be able to return to our Heavenly Father once again.

So when it comes to our religion, we thank and honor the courage and sacrifice of Joseph Smith, but it ends there. We worship God the Father and his son Jesus Christ.

We preach of him, we teach of him, he is the chief cornerstone of our faith. We hold God in the same regard as a father who love us and we love him
