Remember That One Time...
I often have moments with the missionaries that lead us to say... remember that one time....?
So I've accumulated some of my favorite remember that one times... because I want to remember these moments with my favorite missionaries who have definitely been on a missionary high lately with the baptism of 4 new members in our ward within the last month, including my buddy, Sky!
Remember that one time... DDaisy called the missionaries and talked to Elder Cox, telling him, "Hi, my name is Daisy and I started investigating the Church in San Jose and am now back here... when can we meet for a lesson?"
Remember that one time... Daisy met Elder Ridge for the first time and told him he had the ugliest orange paisley tie on that she had ever seen in her life?
Remember that one time.... Elder Ridge and Daisy made up a secret handshake and she got really excited but the next time we met, he forgot how it went?
Remember that one time.... Elder Cox told me Daisy she shouldn't worry about getting married since he just met someone who got married at 74?!
Remember that one time... when Elder Ridge scolded at his companion and said, "You're my companion but right now, I cannot agree with you because you just told her she'd be 74 when she gets married!"
Remember that one time.... when Daisy went to the Revlon 5k at the Colliseum and ran into 20 or so missionaries working the event and called the elders right away to share about it?
Remember that one time... when Elder Ridge told Daisy she had to shave her head if she wanted to get baptized?
Rember that one time .. actually, more than once... when Sky and Daisy told the missionaries they had just been drinking together and decided baptism and the whole Mormon thing was just not for them?
Remember that one time.... when Daisy told the Elders about her 5-year college reunion where beer was free flowing ahd she smelled some from a red cup and it smelled so fresh and Elder Ridge said, "Don't be stupid Daisy! Why would you toy with temptation like that?"
Remember that one time.... when Daisy realized the Church was true and knew she couldn't turn back?
Remember that one time.... when Daisy decided not to get baptized and texted the missionaries at 12 AM?
Remember that one time... when Daisy then got an answer (or more an encouragement that she better) from God after freaking out about baptism?
Remember that one time... the elders made Daisy promise not to date any non-members for two years and then yelled at her when a non-member asked her out?
Remember that one time... the elders told Daisy she intimidates men and to be nicer?
Remember that one time.... when Momma Chou brought the only Mormons she knew to Daisy's baptism?
Remember that one time.... Elder Cox got to baptize someone for the first time?
Remember that one time.... Elder Cox made a contorted face for almost every photo during Daisy's baptism?
Remember that one time... Elder Cox destroyed Daisy's Welcome to Relief Society certificate because he was so excited about the Reese's Pieces Peanut Butter cupcake that he dropped the chocolate cupcake he was holding into the same bag that held her certificate?
Remember that one time... when the elders left a note on Daisy's car to avoid the forbidden fruit because although the words of wisdom say eat fresh fruit... it's not supposed to be soaked in alcohol.
Remember that one time.... when Joseph Smith prayed sincerely for an answer?
Remember that one time.... when the Saviour died so that we could live?
Remember that one time... when God's Church was restored?
Remember that one time....
Oh yes. I will remember.
