It's so much fun to get together with our missionaries for longer than 5 or 10 minutes and get to know more about just how missionary work is going.
Here sits Sister Jewett and Sister Bailey, two future doctors! They're both amazing. Sister J will finish her undergraduate work at Weber State then wants to attend University of Oregon for med school. Sister B was going to UVU but didn't really like it so she'll go elsewhere. She did have a full ride to UCLA before her mission but isn't so sure they're holding her place. She'd love to go there then on to U of U for med school. Talk about high achievers. But they're both very accomplished in other areas. Sister J loves to rock climb and rappel and is a certified instructor through the Boy Scouts. She's also quite musical and plays several instrument as does Sister B.
We introduced them to Voodoo's then made a quick run through Bass Pro to see the exciting things the Denham Springs BPS has to offer:)
Here's Sister Lyons' joke of the week:
One Sunday a pastor told his congregation that the church needed some extra money and asked the people to prayerfully consider giving a little extra in the offering plate. He said that whoever gave the most would be able to pick out three hymns.
After the offering plates were passed, the pastor glanced down and noticed that someone had placed a $1,000 bill in offering. He was so excited that he immediately shared his joy with his congregation and said he'd like to personally thank the person who placed the money in the plate.
And there sat our Rosie all the way in the back shyly raised her hand. The pastor asked her to come to the front. Slowly she made her way to the pastor. He told her how wonderful it was that she gave so much and in thanksgiving asked her to pick out three hymns.
Her eyes brightened as she looked over the congregation, pointed to the three most handsome men in the building and said, "I'll take him and him and him!
