So sad to have to say that when I was Ward Mission Leader four of our full-time missionaries were so rude when dining with members that I called the Mission President and we agreed to call a halt to missionary meals by members until we had some better-mannered missionaries.
The missionaries didn't like it, but they didn't like the food, insulted their providers with comments that most three-year-olds have learned to keep to themselves.
We also banned them from "Safe Houses" where they wasted their time for hours and days at a time. The two daughters of one safe-house later married two of the missionaries that found frivolity with impressionable girls to fulfilling their divine missions.
We are all trying to improve ourselves and become more Christlike, but sometimes we lean too heavily on pitiful excuses.
So cute! I am a senior missionary, serving as mission secretary, so I put this on the wall at the Kentucky Louisville Mission office for all to enjoy.
