#ThankfulActs Challenge: Thank Someone for Sharing

Before you skip this post, please hear me out.  I was thinking about the young men and women from my church who choose to serve missions.  I don't know how missionary service works in other churches, but Mormon missionaries dedicate 1-1/2 to 2 years, at their own expense, to go wherever they are assigned, to talk to people about religion.  They are generally in their late teens to mid-twenties.  Communication with their families consists of weekly emails or letters, and twice-yearly phone calls (on Christmas and Mother's Day). Regardless of whether or not you agree with them, I think their dedication to their beliefs is deserving of thanks.  So, if you see a couple of young men or women wearing nametags and knocking on doors in your area, take time to thank them for their service.  Or, you could express your thanks online.

  1. I think the missionaries deserve a big pat on the back and a thank you. It can't be easy to be away from home and as I understand they are usually partnered with someone they don't know. Love seeing them out on their bikes in their white shirts!

    1. You are right--they don't usually know their companions prior to their mission.
