I Want to Be A Missionary Now

Because we're members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, we hear a lot about missionary work. It's customary for young men in the church to serve for two years, starting at age 19, as a missionary, and for young women to serve for a year and a half, starting at age 21. I served for two years in France, at the same time my sister was in France as well. Other family members have served in Hungary, England, Argentina, South Korea, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico and other places. It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Our oldest child, now 10, drew this missionary picture. I like that he notes "tied shoes" are a good prerequisite for missionaries. This is significant, as he holds tied Sunday shoes in low regard right now. The same goes for combed hair. Sigh.
