At our District Meeting last night it was mentioned that very few LDS
troops participated in OA electrions. This trend has been for several
years now. With a large percentage of LDS units, it looks like the
district is not doing a good enough job reaching the units.
Some reasons given were:
1. LDS units only camp Friday night.
2. LDS units do not tend to go camping on a monthly bases.
Given #1 and #2, they may not have enough camping time.
3. They perceive the OA as a secret organization. I sure hope that
this is not the case.
So, are other districts seeing the same trends?
Are there any success stories that I can pass onto the OA chapter?
I do not hope this turns into a big discussion, just looking for input.
As always, you input is greatly appreciated.
Thanks for listening.
