There are many quotes about love in springtime. Somehow it goes with the season, even in a mission.
In the last two days, we have had six Elders call us about the “love problem.” We are so thankful when they call! During a mission, the best way to handle a “love problem,” is to bring it to the forefront and deal with it!
Our Elders look mighty good to the young ladies at Church. The Elders are clean cut, well dressed, groomed, and very nice. They serve, talk kindly, and try to be Christ like. What else do you want in a man anyway????
Most of the time the Elders can turn a head, but occasionally they heart starts to get involved. That’s the right time to call the Mission President. Call him when love is just starting to bloom! All six of the Elders that called were in the blooming stage! They were starting to receive nice notes, sweet texts, and frequent invitations to homes.
Distance is usually the solution – a move to another area. Phone numbers are changed. Information is shared with companions so they can help and give strength. Invitations to homes are cancelled and the missionaries work on “locking the heart” again.
Who wouldn’t fall in love with these fine young men? We are so thankful they try so hard to keep the commitments they have made to their Heavenly Father!
