My wife's brother recently went to Costa Rica to vacation and to visit their fleshly sister. He is a pioneer. When he got back a group of their pioneer friends got together. One of them asked, "Why did you go to Costa Rica?" Another butted in and said, "To preach! To preach!" My wife knew that wasn't the case but her brother didn't correct the wrong assumption. Instead he basked in the attention and the exaltation of his "spiritual sacrifice".
On the surface he and his wife look exemplary as they both pioneer. But being in this family I know that in reality he never even wanted to pioneer but was badgered into it by his wife. She wanted to learn a foreign language but he had no interest in it really. They are always being used in meeting and assembly parts for their "wonderful example". Just curious- what stories can you relate that are similar to this?
