The missionaries working in Alexandra, the first township in South Africa, were headed to an appointment when they noticed a member, named Peter, standing by the road.  Before joining the Church some years ago, this member had excelled at car theft. The missionaries snuck up behind Peter and startled him.  Peter turned and said, pointed to a bulge in one of the pockets of his jacket, “Be careful, you don’t know what I am packing around.” 


A little later, one of the Elders said something that “offended” Peter.  Peter turned to the missionary and said, “Elder, I am so sick of you,” as he reached into his pocket.  The missionary’s heart skipped a beat—but to his surprise, Peter pulled out a cell phone and pointed it at him.  And then laughed.
