Are Mormons Christians?

A couple days ago, I was sitting in the car at the Arboretum in Madison, WI, preparing for my talk at the Spring Green Community Church about  our ministry in Romania.  In the midst of my work, two smiling people approached me.  It was only after they were close that I noticed the name tags that clearly identified them as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons).

The second group were two men outside a little corner store smoking cigarettes and drinking beers.  We hadn’t even planned to talk with them, but they up and asked us, “What are you doing here?”  So we told them how we were out there talking with people about Jesus.  Although one of the men seemed unconcerned about spiritual things, the other (Ioan) seemed to share some concern.  He was especially receptive after we shared what we sensed was a word for him from God.  He knew he was running from God and needed to wake up to him; pray that he would do so.
