    That's why I've been staying away from exercise - it's the only way to salvage my testimony.

    That's the real reason that despite my running and riding, I continue to eschew swimming and will never do a tri. Ol' Scratch has dominion over the waters. Those who swim are just asking for it.

    It is unfortunate you eschew the breaststroke, PAC.

    Yes, Mo's are expected to share everything communally, especially ill health.

    Advice to future Sister Missionaries… Don't worry about putting on a little extra weight and letting yourself go to serve the Lord:



    Extra weight translates to safety?

    "I honestly believe saying someone is a smart lawyer is damning with faint praise. The smartest people become engineers and scientists." -SU.

    There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese. --Coach Finstock

    Interesting that her first piece of advice is about weight and appearance. Not sure how persuasive she is, though. This weekend's article in the Trib seems to suggest that all these new sisters are probably still worrying too much about their weight and not about getting people baptized.

    http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/57...s-lds.html.csp

    The stats are staggering.

    In the year and a half since the LDS Church lowered the minimum age for full-time missionary service, the Utah-based faith has seen its proselytizing force swell from 58,500 to more than 83,000. That’s a 42 percent leap.
    The number of convert baptisms last year grew to 282,945, up from 272,330 in 2012. That’s an increase of — less than 4 percent.

    By my calculations, it will only take us 360 years now to convert the entire world at this new growth rate. No unhallowed hand shall stop the work from progressing.

    we could speed things up a few decades if these sisters would stop worrying about their weight and just get to work.

    I think the Sisters go to Pri or YW in our ward, they want to know the kids and be accessible. Many more kids are willing to talk/invite friends to church than adults, seems to be working for us. I can see not wanting the missionaries around the youth though, what awful examples.

    that clip is really funny, at least with the sound off.

    The mom and son look like they came straight from The Far Side.

    Sure, but apart from THAT, exactly the same!

    Totally not surprised. AZ got a pretty big influx of missionaries who seemingly just roam around with jack squat to do. I don't understand this. I guess it's just growing pains, but man these younger girls-- at least the ones I've seen/been accosted by-- are very unprepared; maybe it just seems that way now that there's a horde of them and they maybe decided to go last minute because everyone else was going. At least they'll come home with a full arsenal in their quivers of ways to deal with passive aggressive rejection.
