Mormon Missionarying-it

Something's right about young men or young women primetiming-it. Two long years of it--for free. No wages; small thanks; hard work. No sweetheart. Two-by-twoing-it; two long years of doing it--for free.

And Ranelle and I watch them executing it. Kids for sure, but they succeed in it. Special--really special kids.

Zone conference yesterday. Forty-six black-suited, grown-up children. An all-day-long get-together; a work-and-social meet combined. And we, we got to go too.

High-spirited, agile bodied, handsome faced, well-dressed-and-groomed, they were all there powwowing-it--while serving their God.

And we, we got to go too.

I always get so excited when I see missionaries, and Jeff is like "yup missionaries." But they are so amazing to me! :)
