Immature Elders

Sometimes in our rush to lionize the missionaries, we forget that they are only 19 and 20-year-old boys. Realizing that makes their accomplishments all the more remarkable.

  1. I'm reminded of their age every time we have them over for dinner and listen to them talking...until they get to the lesson. They mature quickly at that point! ;)
