Adelle Had Felt A Strong Call to Become a Missionary


Margaret tells how at age 19 or 20 her mother, Adelle, felt a strong urge for mission. It seemed to Adelle that there was no way to fulfill her desire, since there had always been someone who depended on her financially. Margaret tells of other unfulfilled desires of Adelle's, for example her strong urge for a college education.
