Storyline

Starting his day in prayer, Rick Thompkins, a Mormon missionary in Europe, pleads for his parents' troubled marriage to heal when his father Jack consults a lawyer about divorce. Back in Utah, the Thompkins' Home Teacher, Jim Slater, asks his Elders Quorum President, Fred Washburn, for release, feeling like he's failing the inactive families for whom he has responsibility. Fred says he will comply, but only if Jim tries one last time. Not knowing of the discord, Jim and his partner Ronny find Rick's sister home alone and she tearfully explains that "nothing is right." Even more convinced of his failure, Jim asks for release again. Rick writes, asking Jim to help and enclosing part of a letter from his mother which explains that she had wanted to confide in Jim as her Home Teacher, but he seemed aloof, with other things on his mind. Jim has his secretary, Brenda, arrange a fishing trip with Fred and Bishop Weston. Over the campfire they all admit failure in not helping the Thompkins ... Written by Brian Greenhalgh
