Funny Request

We gave a talk at a stake this last Sunday and it was funny, entertaining and successful. After the meeting everyone wanted to visit with us and it was great. We went home. The next day, a lady that had attended the meeting came to the Area to do some volunteer work. She happened to see us and came over to talk to us. She said: "That was the most wonderful meeting. I went home and cried I was so happy. You need to talk to the other people that come to talk and teach them how to speak." Don't you think that is funny?

Another one this week: I talked to a missionary that we have not seen yet on the telephone. His dad was my counselor but the boy was one cup short of a pint. As we were talking he said: "President are you still fat?' I said yes but not as much.

People are funny.
