Missionary Monday

All missionaries want to have a white Christmas. What this means as a missionary is that someone you have taught will be baptized all dressed in white.
"Tommy is getting baptized on Saturday, the 19th. He is 15 and he is solid. We have taught him 3 and a half lessons in the last 2 weeks and he's been going to church every Sunday and going to mutual. He's got great fellowship from the young men. It is a golden situation. It's like LT from the 2 yard line, Automatic."
Elder Jordan got his Christmas wish.
I love how he compares spiritual things to football. LT is LaDanian Tomlinson.
Four more days until I hear my boy's voice. I'll get my Christmas wish too.

Yay for Jordon!

I'm glad that is the sort of White Christmas he wants since there is nary a flake of snow on the ground.

Of course, that is the way we transplanted SoCalifornians like our Christmases. Now if we could only get the temperature up into the 70s...
