Another Visit

Hello Dear Reader,
Brother Bradley visited us again Sunday evening. As he was leaving he handed Grandpa (Wesley) Carter the keys to the car parked in the driveway and said, "Brother Carter you are on your own. No way am I going to ride with you while you're learning to drive on the left side of the road." He gave Grandpa a few pointers, the address of the office, and told him to visit the office Monday afternoon.

Grandpa took the car out early Monday morning, got lost, and had to have someone tell him how to get home. This was a new experience for Grandpa as he had a great sense of direction. But we were in a different situation. For one things there were no mountains as a point of reference and another thing was that it was foggy most of the time so we couldn't see the sun as a point of reference either. One thing about Grandpa, though, he wasn't defeated easily.

That afternoon he drove to the office and met the personnel--the people who directed the church building program in the British Isles. While there, Grandpa was told to prepare himself and his family that he would be traveling quite extensively as the assistant area supervisor. This assignment meant he would be away from home at least three or four nights a week.
