Thanksgiving in Spartanburg

Jack and I have been trying to find a service project to do on Thanksgiving Day.  We thought it would be fun to feed dinner to the homeless.  But...we found that all the slots to help had been filled weeks ago.  We thought maybe we'd go to one church and help fill boxes to be taken to shut-ins, but then we thought of another idea.  Sister Fenton had mentioned a week or so ago that the missionaries in the NW part of the state don't get many dinner invitations.  Most members in the area have very little to give.  So, we wondered if any of the missionaries had not been invited for Thanksgiving dinner.  We asked Elder Stadel to send out a text to see if all the missionaries had been taken care of.  Two sets of elders had not.  One pair was in the NW, but one pair was over in Camden.  We were kind of surprised about that.  However, I have a friend who is a wonderful cook, and a very generous person, who lives over there.  So I sent off a text and voila! Thanksgiving dinner for the Camden elders!  Thanks to my good friend (who Dena found first), Tanya Sowell and her husband Will!
