Most of the pioneers I knew, viewed Jehovah as their "boss" and apparently their boss ruled with an iron fist and an eye on the clock.
When I was pioneering, my son was 3. One day, someone did a return visit across the street from a playground, so while she went to the call I took him over and let him swing and slide for a bit. When i got back to the car, they were already back from the call and were all huffy 'cus I had "wasted" 10 minutes of service time. I didn't pioneer long after that.
How can you be happy and not tired all the time with a "boss" like that?
