I just found a website of a Mormon missionary in Armenia. May God give her wisdom and discernment to see truth better.

Therefore prepare yourself and arise, and speak to them all that I command you. Do not be dismayed before their faces, Lest I dismay you before them.  For behold, I have made you this day a fortified city and an iron pillar, and bronze walls against the whole land...

As a former Mormon looking back, I have found that it is difficult to persuade Mormons that another religion is true because they see things through the lens of Jesus' statement that "by their fruits ye shall know them." Thus Mormons look at their own tradition and see a religion that, depsite persecution, has experienced rapid growth and prosperity. Further, they have the strongest missionary force in the world and are one of the most charitable organizations in the world as well. Thus if you said to a Mormon "you should be Orthodox" they might respond "Why? You are isolated, don't proclaim your faith, your religion isn't growing, it isn't prospering, etc."

The best way we can evangelize Mormons is by getting our own house in order.

There is simply no comparing the persecution the Mormons experienced in the USA to what the Armenians suffered under the Persians, Turks, etc.

May God give her to see the Light of His Truth and thwart any efforts to lead Orthodox Armenians into the darkness and falsehood she is preaching.
