Not Your Day

Some days on your mission, things just don't work out for you. My second birthday as a missionary certainly felt like that. The day began with some guy accosting us arguing that we didn't worship on the Sabbath. That was followed by 12 hours of rejection as we had no appointments and filled our time by knocking on doors.

Still I came home to our apartment that night content that I had worked diligently (if not smartly) for the Lord.

Brother of Jared's Idea

Have you ever wondered what cartoonists did when they wanted to represent someone having an "eureka" moment prior to the invention of the light bulb? Fortunately for Jaredite cartoonists, they had a replacement.

Rest Hymn Versus Power Nap

This guy is right: rest hymns are, by and large, way too short. Especially those sung at the hour mark during General Conference. For me, it is not about power naps but stopping by the bathroom, making a sandwich, and checking the scores. How am I supposed to do all of that during four verses of "The Spirit of God"?

(You may notice a lack of facemasks in today's comic. This is not at all a political statement. Rather I simply have grown tired of drawing them and since the observation in today's gag has nothing to do with the pandemic we find ourselves in, I opted to go without.)

Birthday Breakfast

I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend. Here Elder Van Dyke is trying to enjoy another celebration. (It's not going well.)

Kevin Beckstrom is sharing his comprehensive General Conference notes on his website. They'll make you wish you kept notes half as entertaining. Check them out on his website.

Birthday in the Field

Birthdays as a missionary are kind of weird. Weird in the sense that they aren't at all different from any other day as a missionary.
