A week of weirdness, weirdos and weirdographers. Not really. I’m just bored.
Well, since we e-mailed on Tuesday, not much happened. We did have a lesson with a referral named Wen Chunpai, and she was very nice. We talked about the Restoration of the Gospel and such, and she said that she would read the Book of Mormon and pray about it, which we’re very grateful for. She’s 26 though, so unless we can start teaching her family–if she has one–we have to pass her off to the YSA Elders.
We were pretty much in Ontario all day because we had President interviews at 11 o’clock, but we apparently didn’t get the text that our interviews had been changed to 1:30. So that was convenient. I’m hard-serving it–because it was literally the opposite of convenient.
After all of our stuff, we went to Sharon Bean’s house, who is this nice less-active old lady. She’s about 88. She promised she would come to church soon, but who knows what’ll happen?
Pretty much just visited retired persons all day. Nobody was home because it’s Chino Hills. Well, I guess the struggle is that nobody is RETIRED. Maybe that would make more sense.
That’s a lie, some people are retired.
Weekly planning all day. Quite the party.
I went on exchanges with Elder Hatch, the district leader. It was really fun. We talked about a lot of things, and he’s the one who replaced me in Greentree when I left it, so we reminisced about that. He’s a really nice guy. It was a fun exchange.
We saw an Ilote kid parked and serving Ilote, and I was like, “I live in Chino Hills. I’m never going to get another chance to get Ilote ever again in my flippin’ life.” So I had 5 dollars left for milk on this monday, and I was like, “I can spare 1.50”. So we approached and started talking to the guy. Then, someone came to order something. While they were ordering, I turned to Elder Hatch and said, “We’ll share the Restoration with him while he makes me some corn.”
Then, while waiting, a random homeless lady walked up and asked me to buy her some food, to which I agreed to do so, because I figured I had some change I could use for milk at home. Then, as we’re waiting to buy something for her, this random homeFULL black lady walks up and asks me to buy her something. I told her I didn’t know if I had enough money, but she just stood there and waited, and I could tell she wasn’t going to actually buy something for herself. She was just waiting to see if I would buy her something. So I gave in and bought them both something, and one of them was 2 dollars, and the other was 2.50, so I was left with 50 cents to buy milk.
I shared my experience in Elders Quorum because we were talking about service and stuff, and afterward, Brother Russavage walks up, shoves a twenty in my shirt pocket and says, “You can’t go without milk.”
What a guy!
Other than that, we went to Brother Dan Christensen’s house. He’s a really cool guy! He’s writing a book too, in his free time, so we talked about that, and it was really awesome. We understood each other pretty well, ha ha.
Well, there’s my week. Hope you all have a good one.
Elder Jensen out.
