Oh my, that is GOOD!! I can’t decide whether my favorite answer is “four score and seven years” or the one about Gideon’s Bibles! I hope my score allows me entrance to heaven! Did you come up with all this yourself? (I am betting you did.) Are you positive LeRoy wasn’t among the 12? I seem to remember a reference to his attending the Last Breakfast. Just to show I am really paying attention, I note the following:
The Apostle Paul was sent to…
1. North Dakota
2. The Gentiles
3. Jerusalem
4. Summer Camp
Acts 9:15;

This could have two answers: Of course, the best is the Gentiles since that was the distinctive mark of his ministry. But 3 years, and again 14 years, after his conversion, Paul went to Jerusalem, first to meet with Peter, then again with Barnabas and Titus. Gal. 1: 18-19; 2: 1 -2 Note that in the latter reference he says, “I went there because God revealed to me that I should go.” I would call that “sent.”
