Having His Name Upon Us and Memorial Day!

Craig and I have both loved having our Missionary name tags on again.  No matter where we go we try to be more friendly, thoughtful, and helpful.  In just one day last week Craig was able to:

  • Help the neighbor of a perspective member we were visiting move in - by helping him carry his recliner, BIG couch and queen bed upstairs.
  • Push a lady's dead car through an intersection.
  • Help a wheelchair-bound member in and out of our car and into a hospital.

I am grateful that he has kept himself healthy and in good shape so he can do those things, and glad for the good "PR" it does, as we always explain to people who we are and what we are doing here in Orlando.

I am embarrassed to admit that when we don't have our tags on (exercising or certain p-day activities) I know I don't put forth as much effort as when we have on our tags.  But we have promised to ALWAYS take His name upon us, so we should always be our most Christ-like selves!

We are still meeting people, and figuring out how we can best help.  Most of the people we visited last week who said they would come to church today didn't - in fact, the only who did is a little wheelchair-bound woman who we picked up!  So we are feeling the discouragement that all missionaries feel from time to time, but we will sit down today and plan, organize, and try again this coming week!

We hope everyone enjoys their Memorial Day tomorrow; in addition to being a lovely day off, please remember those who have fought and died to keep our country free!  Since I have no missionary pictures this week, I will insert the photo below, in memory of my father who served his country from WWII through Viet Nam.  Craig's father also served in WWII, but sadly we don't have access to a picture of him.  Thank you to all who have served or are currently serving!
