(Buddy enters then Butch and Spike)
Buddy: Hi boys and girls! It's me, Buddy Barrel. I sure hope you all keep remembering to bring your barrels in each month to help the missionaries!
(Spike and Butch enter)
Buddy: More people need to think about the missionaries who have traveled so far to tell others about the love of Jesus.
Butch: Hi Buddy.
Spike: Hi Buddy.
Buddy: Hi Butch. Hi Spike. Are you guys working on your reward too?
Buddy: Your missionary reward!
Spike: Buddy, we're not really missionaries.
Butch: Yeah, we just do what we can to help spread the news about Him and bring in our barrels to help.
Buddy: Just as I thought!
Buddy: You are working on your reward! Great job guys!
Butch: But Buddy, haven't you heard what we said?
Buddy: Oh, I have, but haven't you heard what Jesus said?
(Pause, while they look worried at each other)
Spike: What was that, Buddy?
Butch: Yeah, do you know something that we should know?
(Buddy tips his head toward the guys)
Spike: What? What is it? (Looking worried and panicking)
Buddy: Always remember that Jesus said that whoever gives a prophet so much as a drink of water, will earn a prophet's reward! Or an evangelist....
Butch: (exclaiming) Or a missionary!!!
Spike: Oh yeah, I get it!
Butch: (cheering) Yippee! Woo hoo!
Spike: Wow! That's really neat!
Butch: So just by giving money from our barrels means we'll get a missionary reward in heaven?
Buddy: That's right!
Butch: Wow, I can't wait to see what it is! Thanks Buddy! I'm gonna telling everyone who helps! (He exits)
Spike: Yeah, thanks Buddy! (Exits)
Buddy: And thank you boys and girls for all that you do too! You're surprise is yet to come! (Exits)
