“My companion is the biggest tool I’ve ever known!”
Pranks. Practical Jokes. Dastardly deeds of trickery. What to send our missionary for the First of April in two weeks? Hmm …
Over almost two decades of married life, we have had the missionaries over for dinner a lot! We’ve collected quite a few memorable moments during these wonderful meals together.
Several articles are making the rounds on social media lately claiming that God is not in the details of our lives. Instead, the difficulties we are going through are of our own and others’ making and God has no part of them.
Every week, missionaries get one day to take care of their personal needs for the week. This day is called their preparation day, or P-day. Mundane tasks like laundry, grocery shopping, haircuts, etc. are all taken care of once a week.
A few Sundays back, as I stood in the foyer, one of the ladies in our congregation came up to me and started sharing how wonderful dinner was the night before. She had been invited to have dinner with a family in our congregation. This family is known for reaching out and inviting new members of our faith over to their home. The food is plentiful and delicious and those invited feel warmly welcomed.
