Did you ever have a crush on anyone you were proselytizing to?

There was one girl. She was hot! I still think about her to this day. Our mission had a rule that you couldn’t teach single women alone in their home so we always taught her on her front lawn. I hated that rule. I also had a crush on the sister of the first person I baptized. She showed up at the last discussion, and I was like, damn! I never acted on my crushes, but a 20-year-old boy’s hormones are just as powerful on a mission.
