I remember walking through a couple pairs of very sturdy not cute shoe along the streets of Wisconsin, I think I still have the first pair somewhere. The mark of a good missionary.
So true... :) Funny, that's what Elder Dickerson was saying...that he was considering saving a pair, but then after looking at them...he thought not! :)
When my son left his Louisiana mission, his mission president asked for his worn out shoes, and he put them in a glass box on a pedestal in the foyer of the mission home. Pretty neat.=)
My husbands tracting shoes look just like that! Way to go Elders, that's the way they SHOULD look. I'd love for you to do a guest post for me sometime. You can email me at pmwhiteley (at) gmail (dot) com if you are interested and we can talk details.Thanks!Mackenzie @ www.fridaynightdatenight.blogspot.com
I've sent two missionary sons out. One to Taiwan and one to Japan...
My hubby has a picture of his feet after walking on the cobblestone roads in Portugal. His feet were black and blue :( Good missionaries :)
Awesome!! Shows hard work. My husband kept his mission shoes for a long time and finally got rid of them a few years ago. They were worn out and stinky, so sign of a hard worker! PS. Your "shoes" should be looking like that soon enough!=)
Thanks all, I'm leaving a comment to hopefully test something!
Don't you just love Missionaries! They are the best guys ever.
Here is a poem about missionary shoes that I came across one day at http://www.religiousforums.com/forum/games-pics-jokes-stories/18415-poem-missionary.html . Thought you might like it.If the Lord Were In My ShoesIf the Lord were in my shoes, what would he do today?Would he go find his wand'ring sheep, or goof around and play?This time I have is oh so choice, too good to let it lay, So if the Lord were in my shoes, what would he do today?If the Lord were in my shoes, how would the Master speak?Would all his words be bold, yet kind; or timid, small, and weak?Straight from his loving heart they'd flow, so for this love I'll seek.Now, if the Lord were in my shoes, how would the Master speak?And if the Lord were in my shoes, how many would he callTo come, repent, and be baptized? Would he ask few, or all?Yes, every soul must hear his truth; if not, they just might fall.So if the Lord were in my shoes, how many would he call?Now this is not a game, my friend; it's not a test or quiz.To know of Christ's atonement you don't have to be a whiz.The Savior suffered all for me; that's whose this mission is.So you could say He's worn my shoes--now I am wearing His.
I love that poem! Wonderful!
