Wise Men

Seeing as they're living in the meridian of time, something tells me that those guys are never going to get any cell service--wise men indeed! Today's gag comes from the fertile mind of faithful reader Emily P.

Sneaking a Peek

Poor Elder Van Dyke has to wait hours until his parents come home before he can open his mission call. Of course, this is no longer the case today.

Now when a mission receives his mission call, it won't get opened until he can gather dozens and dozens of his closest friends, a camera crew, and a sizable following on social media. Once all of that has taken place, the missionary can open his call.

Sheesh, kids these days.

Here Comes the Mission Call

Thanks to everyone who offered their opinion on the future of Missionary Monday. It looks like the majority of you would like this little feature to continue in some sort of capacity. So here's what I'll do: I'm going to rerun a number of story lines, but I'll also sneak in some new strips that explore aspects of missionary life that I may have somehow missed previously. I'll also explore the ideas of tracking Alex Van Dyke's post-mission life from time to time. It should be fun.

In the meantime, here's the very first strip with the arrival of Elder Van Dyke's mission call.

Turkey Bowl Pros and Cons

As I get older and older, the cons to a once-a-year flag football game start to outweigh the pros.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Stuck on Zero

Today's strip wraps up Ivan's story. It looks like Elder Van Dyke learned a valuable lesson. Aren't you glad you stuck it out to the end?

I'm kind of at a crossroads with my missionary strips here on this blog. I've nearly exhausted my inventory of strips and find myself unsure of how to proceed. The way I see it, I can do one of two things: I can retire Missionary Monday and only post to this website on Thursdays or I can start rerunning the missionary strips.*

If you're all not sick of the democratic process, take a moment and cast a vote in the comment section: option one or option two.

*I suppose there is a third option of actually coming up with a new strip every week, but come on, we all know I'm too lazy for that. (It's not like I'm Kevin Beckstrom or something.)

Overcrowded Primary Program

It's that time of year! There is rarely a better sacrament meeting than the primary program. It can make for an overcrowded rostrum, though.
