A Special Kind of Missionary…

We got a call to help a sister whose husband is away. She needed to attend Ward Council and had no one to watch her children while she was gone. We readily agreed and arrived with all the materials for making gingerbread houses. Mom left and we laid out all the candies for decorating their creations. Elder Park said enthusiastically,

“Isn’t it great to have missionaries visit?”

“That depends…,” said the 9-year-old boy.

“Depends?! Depends on what?”

“Depends on the kind of missionary…There are the ones who come and give a lesson…and then there are the ones who bring candy for you to eat and play games with you and let you stay up past your bedtime.”

We are so happy to be THAT kind of missionary!
