A Missionary's Story: The Letters and Journals of Adolf Haag, Mormon Missionary to Switzerland and Palestine, 1892
A Missionary's Story provides a brief but powerful history of the life of Adolf Haag. Divided into five sections, the book tells of Adolf 's premission life and includes portions from his mission journals, sent letters, and other articles regarding Haag's service as a missionary. Introduced to the gospel in Germany, Adolf was the first of his family to immigrate to the United States. He settled in Payson, Utah, where he married and began a family. It wasn't long before he was called to serve a mission to Switzerland and Germany, but when he arrived in the field, he was assigned to be a traveling elder in the Turkish Mission, which included Palestine. Adolf 's letters and journal entries describe his travels across the United States to New York and to London, Paris, Switzerland, Turkey, Greece, and Egypt, culminating in his arrival in the Holy Land.
