Do I Miss My Little Pickup Truck?
When my husband bought me a pickup truck he mentioned that he didn't mind the price of the truck but he had great concern about what I might bring home in it. Since being in India I've learned to get good results by only using an auto. Our new Church is on the fifth floor of a new building. we are the first tenants and did our improvements. From a big empty space we created a meeting house with a welcoming atmosphere. Ever since moving in we have tried to get the outside nice too.
We walk in a separate pathway, but we knew that the general authority from Hong Kong would be driven in and get out in the parking garage. I took the pots off our terrace, the auto driver found dirt and we bought fresh new plants to put outside the elevator.
For weeks we had asked the owner to finish up the front. Finally the morning of our conference meetings works showed up to move the big pile of gravel. They started at eleven AM.
This is one "head full" at a time and walking up five stories of stairs where they piled the little rocks on the roof. It will be interesting to see how they will be used.
“I will go and do the things which the Lord hath commanded, for I know that the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them.” 1 Nephi 3:7
“All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord: and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee.” Psalms 22:27
