    I volunteered to help inspect our mission's cars this morning during a mission conference. Overall, the cars were in good shape, although sisters' vehicles were invariably cleaner and in better shape than elders'. While inspecting a sisters' car, I turned on the radio and was amused to hear a CD of some rockin' instrumentals. The first one up was, appropriately enough, the theme from Mission Impossible. The CD was a violation of mission rules, but the sisters' secret remained safe with me. They got a full pass.

    inspecting mission cars? wow, they are really putting you out to pasture, aren't they? i assume they are going to call you to work in the stake genealogy library soon or maybe lock the building up each night.

    I volunteered. This kind of occasional assignment, along with my demanding calling of HP Group Secretary, keeps me way out in said pasture, where I am very content.

    It's called lobbying. First thing is volunteering to inspect cars, and the next thing you know... 24 months later your sending guys home in boxer shorts.

    Well, one of the creepy web-winged mammals recently awakened a "sister missionary," and now she and her roommates are undergoing "appropriate preventative treatment for rabies," LDS Church spokesman Eric Hawkins confirmed Wednesday.

    In addition, just to be cautious, 600 other female LDS missionaries — housed in a once-vacant building on the south side of the MTC campus near Brigham Young University — have been moved to nearby areas so pest-control experts can address the bat infestation.
    Sister missionaries. I tell you...

    New program for missionaries to help them adjust after the mission:

    I think it's good for no other reason than to give soon-to-be RMs some internet time to start making arrangements when they land home. In some areas without Ipads, it's ridiculous how little computer time is available. There are place where missionaries are assigned times at the stake center just to email home. It's not uncommon to read an email ending with: "Got to end the email now, my time slot started 10 minutes late and now another missionary is telling me that my time is up. Or it's an ingenuous excuse to write a short email. Can't imagine how a missionary would be expected to reapply to a university, secure housing, pull a semester schedule with the few minutes of computer time they are allowed on a given P-Day without a program like this.

    Personally, the wait or delay between communications got somewhat frustrating for me as a parent. Universities have deadlines to reapply and get into campus housing, etc. Finally, the my-plan gave my son the "excuse" to devote time to getting readmitted to college, determine semester schedules (course requirements tend to change over time) and try to set up an internship or other work opportunity before the semester starts. Universities and employers outside the Mormon West often don't realize how cut-off missionaries are from the outside world and many (most?) missionaries don't feel they have the freedom to devote time to establishing their plans once their mission ends. Like most things in the missionary world, a program has to be set up so a missionary knows it is officially sanctioned.

    That's a pretty good idea. I know I had about a month long lapse of empty space between coming home and going to school, in which I binged on tv, music, and junk food, effectively corroding away most of the good habits I had developed.

    It probably varies according to mission president. My brother-in-law just got home, and he didn't have time restrictions. He registered for classes, and I helped him with the rest (mostly the parts that involved paying money). I'm sure that there are many presidents who would disagree with my brother-in-law's president and put severe restrictions on how their missionaries use the internet.
    Not that, sickos.
