Stocking up elders at church. Sun, May 20, 2007
05/20/2007. Journal Entry. Our missionaries get only 10 copies of the English Book of Mormon every 6 weeks from the mission office. If they need any more, they are supposed to get them from the ward mission leader or members in the ward (or sent from their family.)
I gave our ward's full-time missionaries (elders) five English copies today, along with some food.
I try to give them a combination of nutritious food, but also some snack food that would not normally be in their food budget. One of our missionaries is a former Marine who served in Iraq until he was wounded. Yesterday (Sat), at a Big Lots (close out) store, I saw "Hooah!, Soldier Fuel", and had to get some for him and his companion.
Other stuff included: Pringles potato chips, salsa, diet soft drinks, lemonade mix, jello mix, ramen noodles, fruit/gummy type candy, noodles, beef jerky, a can of La Choy Beef Chow Mein; all stuff at a discounted price at Big Lots.
