Small Things You Don't See Easily
The children arrived on the bus from Pathway early and the couple missionaries who worked there were pleased that we had arranged good seats up front for the choir. The children had worked hard to prepare and could have just come up for their one number but this way they got the spotlight all morning.
These two young missionaries had spent a lot of months working in Chennai and now they were both together and back with us as assistants to the mission president. They had never been companions in Chennai. Now as companions they had combined their strengths and become a powerful duo to serve the mission and the president. And they never forgot to laugh. One of the mottoes of Chennai , we have many, is IF YOU'RE NOT HAVING FUN YOU'RE NOT DOING IT RIGHT.
Then after the meeting people started thinking and the thought spread like wind that it would not be so very many months before the mission president went home and picture taking started and then exploded.
“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
