What of the
帰還宣教師よりーFrom Returned Missionaries
So enjoy your mission anecdotes.
The part about the whiskey reminds me of a time in Osaka.
As I recall, the third lesson in the old manual was about the Word of Wisdom, and we would ask the investigator if we could take any tobacco that he might want to dispose of.
Well, one the investigators in the Okamachi branch had several cartons of cigarettes, and gave them to the elders that were teaching him. Upon arriving back at the branch the elders threw the cartons of cigarettes on the trash pile in the back of the Okamachi branch. The elders did not know that the branch had a small fire smoldering in the trash pile, so the cigarettes, several cartons, began to smolder also. The whole branch smelled like tobacco for the next month.
Thanks for the mission memories,
