Salt Lake City, Utah—The six women recently called as European Area Advisers have been released after only one week of service due to reports of, “incessant nagging,” from the male European leadership.
“We just couldn’t take any more reminders of, ‘take out the trash,’ or, ‘iron your shirt,’ or, ‘did you get those reports in,'” says Elder Gary Sabin, Europe Area President. “In addition, the amount of time we were taking to explain things became prohibitive to the work.”
President Nelson, who was ultimately responsible for the releases, explained, “The Europe Area Presidency made it very clear to me that it was either them or the girls. I had to do something, and technically somebody over there had to hold the priesthood. I did what I could to save the church in Europe, but Wendy will never let me hear the end of it.”
