Avoiding the Iron

As a missionary I hated ironing. As an adult, I still do.

If I was doing this properly, I would have held onto this gag until Friday, October 13, 2023. Unfortunately, I don't plan that far enough in advance.

Jason Voorhees the hero(?) of the Friday the 13th series of movies has certainly had an interesting career. Not content with killing teenagers at Crystal Lake, he's since moved onto Manhattan, outer space, the dreamscape (where he battled Freddy Kruger), and even H-E-double hockey sticks. But is he ready to face the missionaries of the Transylvania Central Mission? And just what are their mission boundaries anyway?

Once again, I've guest hosted the Come, Follow Me with David Ridges podcast. I was pretty lucky because this week's lesson is Doctrine and Covenants 121-123--the Liberty Jail sections! If you have a spare half an hour give it a listen, won't you?

I'm not sure why when we talk about unimportant church callings, nursery leader always seems to mentioned. It is clearly a hugely important calling and one that takes a skill set that not everyone in the church possesses. (From now on, maybe we should limit those jokes to the high council.)

Pumpkin Spice

Here's a gag that is very similar to one Kevin Beckstrom just published on his website. Given the narrow confines we work in, I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often.

Roller Coaster

In my experience, a mission is more like a roller coaster with a whole lot more ups and downs.

Is it too early to publish Halloween-themed comics? Absolutely. Do I care? No I don't. Every missionary has had the experience of being ghosted, but only the missionaries in the Transylvania Central Mission are ghosted from actual specters.

Hump Day!

Having been on both sides of this, hump day is definitely a bigger thing for the family than the missionary.

Wasn't conference great? Do you want to review the messages complete with cartoons? Check out Kevin Beckstrom's blog. As always, it's the funnest set of General Conference notes on the internet.
