Wow, that was all great.  You're quite the expert on all that!

I've got another story for your grand collection.  In Japan, one of my 
companions was sent home for doing it with one of the wifes of a family 
the missionaries were teaching.  I could see how it happened, because I 
met her one last time before returning home, and when she shook my hand 
with both hands and looked into my eyes... wow.  I think you've got to 
hand it to the large majority of them that can resist such unimaginable 

And it seemed like every missionary over there had several girls visit 
them in the US after they returned home, chasing after them, wanting not 
only a better country economically, but a country that treats women far
