DID THE PASTOR OR A VISITING MISSIONARY EVER COME TO YOUR HOUSE FOR DINNER OR TEA? SHARE ONE VIVID EXPERIENCE.
You are kidding! I understand my paternal grandmother was a very godly woman, but my dad somehow went the other direction. All his brothers turned out to be godly men. I guess that is why we children were sent to church.
Dad always sent some money for church and Sunday School.
As a pastor's wife, we had many missionaries and speakers in our home. I believe Dick Markel was the favorite. He lived in Olean but was in our home many times. He stopped by one day when we were out shopping and left a note: he took a shower and had a cup of coffee. We had him for teen camp. He would go onto the field (baseball) and cheer for both sides while the girls were putting his hair up in curlers. He could crack one joke after another. People loved him. He said when he felt he had everyone's attention, then he dove into the Word. He was right. They all listened and loved him.
