It's a small, small world.


I spoke in Stake Conference this weekend and shared some stories about my grandfather's conversion and experiences in Rhodesia. After I spoke, the Stake President began his talk:

"The world isn't nearly as big as we sometimes think it is. It really is a small world. Thirty-eight years ago I was called to serve in the Johannesburg, South Africa mission. Soon after, I was assigned to the Salisbury, Rhodesia branch where I met President Corbett, shared many great experiences with him, and ate many meals at his home."

I couldn't believe it! This man from tiny Kingman, AZ met and interacted with my own grandfather in southern Africa. I was both astounded and extraordinarily jealous at the same time. One of these days I am going to make him sit down with me and tell me everything he remembers about my grandfather.

We saw a commercial the other day that was set in Kingman, AZ. The world is small, especially within the church!

This is totally unrelated, but I don't have your email. Have you seen the photograph that is supposed to be of Joseph Smith? I've got a copy of it posted on my blog.
