I am so thankful for the missionaries! They are so awesome! If it were not for the missionaries and the special call they receive at 19 my ancestors would not have joined the church. The missionaries here in Italy are so awesome!
The Elders here are for the Italians , but occasionally we have them over for dinner and tonight is one of those nights. Dave comes home from church at about 1pm this afternoon and announces that he has to go hometeaching and that the missionaries are coming to dinner at 8pm. The house of course is a mess and so we all had to get the house cleaned up. Of course, now I am paying for it. Oh well, we are always blessed for feeding the missionaries. These poor missionaries haven't had a steak since they arrived here in Italy.
For those of you who don't understand this idea of missionaries, young men at the age of 19 serve the Lord and move away from home for two years. They put schooling and careers on hold while they serve the Lord and teach those who are interested the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Plan of Salvation.
