Welcome to the episode 11 of the LDS MissionCast. Our special guest on this episode is cartoonist and illustrator, Brittany Long Olsen. She has a really cool book out called Dendo: One Year and One Half in Tokyo. This book is actually her mission journal that she kept in graphic or comic book form. Not only is it an interesting way to keep a journal but it captures the mission experience in a way that is refreshing and real.

In our Latter-day Lives segment we have some mission stories from improv comedians, Ken and Katie Craig, who share a story from their son who is currently serving a mission in Brazil. There is both a funny story and an inspirational one as well. Listen to their full interview on the Latter-day Lives Podcast by clicking here. The last segment is a bit of a personal reflection from host, Nick Galieti, about the importance of journal keeping, and includes a tribute to mission companions. This includes a brief tribute to a mission companion, Robert Beau Clark, that passed away in 2014. Music for this episode comes from Maddy Vance, this super talented LDS Musician who is currently a freshman at BYU, but who talent is beyond her years. You can listen to her music at
