It was 1942 and Brother O'Donnal wasserving as an agricultural adviser in Guatemala. Outside of some Mormon expatriates working near the Panama Canal far to the south, he was perhaps the lone member living in Central America. A congregation of one.
Perhaps it was John Forres O'Donnal's upbringing in the rural Latter-day Saint colonies in northern Mexico that blessed him with a farmer's eye. He could look at a fallow, empty field and immediately divine a rich bumper crop.
