A Visiting Preacher
Tuesday, May 13, 2014 by Sally Jo

Personal Background Investigation- Assignment #17
Did a visiting preacher, missionary or evangelist visit your home or church? What do you remember most about the visit?

Example:
Since my father was a preacher, our family was blessed with many visiting preachers. These guests helped thin out the chicken population on our farm. I really don’t remember learning much from these visiting preachers, because we were outside playing while the adults sat around talking and eating. The kids ate separately. In the 1940’s, when folks got together to eat they abided by the old code that children were to be seen, not heard, and ate last. Sometimes there were slim pickin’s.
One thing I did learn, when my mother cooked for a special visitor, she made extra pies, cakes and other goodies. The kids might have slim pickin’s when it came to the chicken, but we always had other good stuff to eat. (From LaVelle Pitts, memoirs)
