Thank you for extending this opportunity to be closer to our Heavenly Father, and building up his Kingdom on earth.
Unfortunately, I must decline as I am in a situation at work that requires that I be there.
First, no one empties the trash, or dusts my office since the economic downturn do to cut backs.
Second, there are 60 to 100 people outside the doors who could step into my position at half the salary I make, but the owners are very loyal to those who have helped to grow their business, and don't just demand more and more, for less and less. Even so, I'm still trying to get them to take the missionary lessons. How great shall be MY joy, when they see how happy they will be after this life. (Sadly they said they would have to fire someone so they could pay tithing....bet it's that harlot in accounting that drinks coffee all day.)
Third, My family would still be able to survive on the money coming in from my work, that will actually buy food, pay for the roof over our heads, and pay for utilities that keep us warm, cool, or out of stocking candles to see at night. Sorry I mean Pay My Tithing, so fasting a few more days(10) each month shouldn't hurt anything.
Forth, My son is getting married real soon, he has set a date and will be in the Lords temple when he completes his mission. Now thats living as the Prophets have taught. I just hope his wife to be will find a way to tell her current boyfriend God has chosen her to be my sons wife.
So if I take time off from work to "Clean the Temple and Grounds" for my CTG ring, I will be fired and cannot pay tithes which will mean I cannot attend his temple wedding.
Fifth, Since your last letter telling us to come to you to ask questions we have about the Church, and discontinue our internet service so we won't be tempted to look there for answers, I have to go to the library to work my second job online doing translations for the Ensign, and I promise my time is spent doing only that for the 3 hours I'm required to do so for the $15 I get. That extra $300 a month (well much less after taxes, fica, and tithing) almost pays for the supplies my wife needs....yeah, you already know about the attempted suicide. My 10 children are just too busy with their church callings to help at this time.
Finally, I used my last sick-day, last time we were asked to do this, and I have none left. I just hope my dad holds on just one more year, or until my vacation time, sick days, and personal time kick in again, so I can at least attend his funeral. (I know it's only June, but with Scout camp, time at conference doing translations, and planting flowers on temple square, etc, etc I used up all my vacation and sick leave)
And last time it was just my recently divorced son, (you know the one that had to divorce cause his wife questioned the True Church of Joseph) and I, that spent from 7 am to 3 am the next morning cleaning, and doing the grounds work because no one else showed up. Not even you, you FRICKIN SELF RIGHTEOUS SON OF A BISHOP. FUDGE YOU AND THE HORSE YOU RODE IN ON.
Sincerely, "Bro. Please use vaseline next time".
P.S. Had it up to here with promises of your Gosh Dern blessings, and can't wait just to die to see if your MLM will fulfill it's part of the contract. Bastards
