I hope they call me on a mission

We were at our desks when Brother Elks (our second level boss) came to see us with two missionaries (young elders). They told us of a 14 year old girl who was the daughter to a friend of a member....got that? This girl was born physically disabled and has never been out of her house and hasn't even been taught the a,b,c's. They were wondering if we could give them a wheelchair for her so she could at least get out of the house once in a while. We were very happy to do that and told the missionaries to follow us to the warehouse. Just up the road from the area office there was a police road check where they randomly pull over cars. We were waved on but the elders were pulled over. We had to pull over to wait for them. There was a female police officer that questioned them and found out that there was an outstanding ticket on the car but said she would take care of it. Anyway, it seemed to be taking a long time and I made a comment to Terry that they are probably giving her the first discussion. When we got to the warehouse we asked what was taking so long...they said they were getting her information, teaching her a little bit and setting up an appointment to continue. That road block was set up to bring the gospel into that lady's life!

I so enjoy hearing about your days in So. Africa. All of Zion, above and below, is actively engaged in 'the work'. I'm so thankful when I hear these stories. March on, Roayl Army.

I can't wait to hear the stories that Ashton has to share. I have always loved the missionaries and when we lived out-of-state we were blessed to be able to feed many of them!! Now someone will have to repay the favor for my own missionary........;)
