Isaiah 6 verse 5

The Meenister’s Log

Two Mormon missionaries were asked to speak at the small church in which they were serving. As the first missionary got up to speak, the zip in his trousers broke — unbeknown to the young Elder.

The sanctuary  was so small that they didn’t even have a real pulpit; they used a music stand to speak behind.

It didn’t take long for everyone to notice the young missionary’s problem. In his innocence, he continued to talk, but couldn’t figure out why he was getting so many smiles at first, followed by a few nervous giggles.

Even his companion had figured out the problem by now, so he looked in his scriptures and wrote “Isaiah 6:5” on a small piece of paper and slipped it into his companion’s hand.

Unfortunately, the new missionary wasn’t familiar with the Old Testament, so he figured it must be something his companion wanted him to read. Opening the scriptures, he read aloud: “Then said I, Woe [is] me! for I am undone.!”
