Helping Hands and Loving Hearts
The usual stand-out attire for missionaries for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was set aside for a few hours today in order to provide some sorely needed landscaping assistance at Tasputra Perkim in downtown Kuala Lumpur. Instead, the missionaries showed up in casual gym clothes, including tee shirts, basketball shorts and sneakers, prepared to tackle the yard. Ignoring dripping perspiration and pesky mosquitoes, weeds were plucked, planters were raked, and bushes were trimmed! The final result was a neat and tidy yard, rescued once again from the jungle that constantly threatens to overtake!
