Home Sweet Home


When the Collings first arrived in the valley, Richard built a dugout for the family to live in, however, Sister Colling refused to move in. What was the issue?

a.      No ventilation

b.      She didn’t want to live underground

c.       She didn’t want to appear to be poor

d.      Limited natural light

 

Yesterday’s answer:

a.      Sir Winston Churchill

Elders G. Edward Baddley and Rodney H. Brady, serving in the British mission in August 1954, had the opportunity to visit Sir Winston Churchill at his 400-year-old country estate. They were asked to escort a vising dignitary to Churchill’s’ home so a gift could be presented to the British prime minister. When they arrived, Churchill greeted the threesome, offered them drinks, and ex-changed pleasantries. At the appropriate time, the elders finally stepped forward to express their appreciation to Churchill for this great works and kindnesses shown toward the Church. They then presented him with a handsome leather-bound triple combination. Churchill hurriedly thumbed through the volume and thanked the givers by raising his glass and making a toast to their good health.
