In my fourth podcast episode, I talk with the missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who are serving here in Port Angeles, Washington. We discuss the Grateful Wall which was on display downtown on 11/07/2020.

This is from an article I sent in to the Peninsula Daily News:
Imagine this. You are a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and there is a major pandemic which has altered the course of how you share the joy of the gospel of Jesus Christ. These young men and women go out at ages 18-19 years old. Normally they spend their time knocking on doors, sharing a message of joy and hope, and teaching in people’s homes. With all of the COVID restrictions, they’ve had to come up with a new way of doing things.
As Thanksgiving is fast approaching, one thing that they thought would be unifying for the residents of Port Angeles, was to have a way to show gratitude; a Grateful Wall!
They asked some of the Port Angeles Facebook groups if they could get donations for the supplies. Several people offered the needed supplies.
The idea is simple. They constructed a temporary grateful wall downtown just for today. Those passing by could write down on index cards what they were grateful for and add it to the wall.
In a time when we have to physically distance, some are struggling with depression, and there is a lot of political division, we can use more unifying and uplifting things like the gratitude wall. Thank you missionaries! Keep up the good work!
Cheers from the Pacific Northwest! #PNW
Do your own Grateful wall!
