Couples Night Out
The senior couples went to dinner at the Revolving Restaurant (similar to the Space Needle) to welcome a new couple that just arrived. I heard that 40% of couples called to Africa turn it down, but 80% who have been on a mission to Africa will return if they go on another mission. Most turn down the mission for fear of coming to a wild untamed country. It's interesting what fear or the unknown can do to a person. The first two months we were here, we made sure we were home before dark, now we come and go whenever we please. I can see how fear can stop progression in a persons life or hold them back from their potential. I'm learning and growing just like the young missionaries. Sometimes that's good and some days it's hard. Elder Cinquini and I are doing our best, but one thing for sure, we have been so blessed to be here and met such wonderful people.
