The Brown Suit! -gfh
Elder Paunoswiswa keeping the tradition of the Brown Suit alive!
There is a fun tradition here in the mission. Since 2001 there has been a brown striped three piece suit and a tie that some how mysteriously shows up on an elder at transfer meeting. Sister Poulsen has asked President to confiscate it and burn it but I'm sure she loves the tradition as well. However it is pretty ugly. Each missionary who wears it signs and dates on the inside of the jacket. We never know who is going to be wearing it. This transfer the Assistant to the President who was being replaced wore the suit. Elder Henrichsen is thinking of wearing next.
As you will notice from the picture it doesn't matter how it fits. The important thing is keeping the tradition alive!
