These are my cute parents...
They are serving in the Mississippi Jackson Mission. Mom is getting used to the humidity and Dad is getting used to Southern hospitality! They love their mission and the younger Elders and Sisters that are serving with them. One of their responsibilities is to do apartment checks on transfer day. NOW... right here you need to know that my Mother keeps the cleanest house this side of the Mississippi-- so clean that when we were dating, my husband thought that our front room (you know, the visiting teacher room) was kinda like the rooms at the capitol that are roped off and NOBODY EVER GOES IN EXCEPT TO DUST!
So, when my Mom was telling me about their assignment to check apartments, I told her she should get a pair of white gloves, you know... to kinda freak the missionaries out a bit. She said the weirdest thing had happened, they had brought their clothes home from the laundry mat and dumped the whites out on their bed to fold and would you believe at the bottom of that pile was a perfect white glove!!! I told her it must be a sign! HAHA!
Clean apartments or not, these missionaries serve the Lord with all their hearts, might, minds and strength! It is a beautiful thing to see the light of Christ in their eyes!
