September 20th

Friday September 20th, 1968
Clinton, Tennessee
This morning M.G. put up a bunch of our pictures, curios, etc.  We enjoyed having a whole day at home.  Tonight Mama came up and looked at T.V. with us while Dad went to his lodge meeting at Lake City.  Uncle Kyle called to tell us that Uncle Marsh died today.  Tonight I figured up that we have been in 24 different churches and have spoken about 35 times since we got here.  That is besides our camps, convention, and Glorieta.

When we were on the mission field our trips to the states were called furlough.  After looking up the definition for that in the dictionary I discovered that our travels to the states were a cross between number 1 and number 2.  I don’t know about Mom and Dad but Alan and I were always glad when we were headed back to the shores of East Africa where we could catch our breath. 

1. Military. a vacation or leave of absence granted to an enlisted person.
2. a usually temporary layoff from work
3. a temporary leave of absence authorized for a prisoner from a penitentiary.
