Things to know

Regularly read by 50,000+ readers in over 140 countries around the world, "Dear Bro Jo" is published several times a month.

This is column is just one guy's opinion, and while he does his best to keep what he thinks, says and writes in-line with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, "Dear Bro Jo" is not an LDS Church website. (And Sister Jo thinks you should know that he's sometimes wrong, and often way too opinionated for his own good.)

How to Pursue a Sister Missionary - Part 3 of 3

Dear Bro Jo,

I would appreciate any advice on how to proceed.

More specifically, on how to contact her (or vice versa) after her mission.

- Friend

Dear Friend,

If a job would make a difference, get one.

- Bro Jo

Dear Bro Jo,

I would gladly accept any kind of serious job offer. (Also, without an employer willing to sponsor me, I couldn't get a visa)

- Friend

Dear Friend,

If Utah is too far or expensive, try the UK.

Or Las Vegas.

Or San Diego

Or Australia or New Zealand.

How did the people who live in your branch that are married meet?

Do what they did!

The bottom line is this:  as long as you focus on the obstacles you will have a tough time achieving your goal.

Instead of making excuses, make plans.

If you really want to contact this sister after her mission is completed, tell her.

Ask for her home address.

It's that simple.

If she asks why, tell her that, too.

See the net, not the goalie.

- Bro Jo
