Let's get the combines going !

The following is an excerpt from a letter that Elder Wright sent to his family:

"Well, Elder Rich and President came to see us. I gave an hour long talk on why we should be "combines" and harvest the baptisms. See DyC 4:4. I talked about how the field is white and ready to harvest, about how there are many people looking for the gospel in their lives and they just don't know where to find it. See DyC 123:12. And how we as missionaries from the north mission should be like the combine and harvest all the people that we can. It was one of the funniest talks I have given on my mission. President loved it, and Elder Rich couldn't stop laughing, saying that I was a real hick, and that only an Idaho boy could put a wheat harvest story in a church talk! We spent the day with them and it was fun."

**Elder Rich's mom thinks Elder Rich is the pot, calling the kettle black !
