Do we have any idea what CLL did to make a living when he and the Mrs. got married in 1960?  He didn't start preaching until 1971.  Then there seems to be a gap from 1974 to 1980.  Bio says mission work, but, how did he make a living for his family?

This is the chunk of time I am most curious about, too Sister!
