It's M A R L A
Notice anything different about this Barbie? You might not be able to see the small print but there is a name tag and it says "Sister Kucera". There is also a CTR ring on the right hand. And how about that Book of Mormon velcroed to the dress? There are so many things I love about this Barbie.
My dear friend Jill made it for me and sent it to me during my mission in California. It came in a box, labeled Missionary Barbie. She made the clothes herself - totally dig the daisies and the belt - and she made pretty much everything else except the actual doll itself. Not only did she make the doll, she decorated the box and wrote a description of what Missionary Barbie can do. One of my favorite lines was "Watch Missionary Barbie as she slaps Elder Ken" or something like that ...
However, when I took it for Show & Tell for one of District meetings, the Elders didn't think it was as funny as I did and that was kind of awkward. Maybe they didn't expect one of the show & tell items to be a Barbie doll. Who knows. Or maybe they were just jealous that no one made them a Missionary Barbie (or should I say KEN). I guess I'll never know.
