That's why you don't break the rules and be stupid.

March 2, 2015

Once again, no time, so here goes:

We had service giving out extra food from the food bank, and I was in charge of onions for the second week in a row, so I smelled wonderful for the rest of that day. Though I did get 48 free Popsicles, so it was worth it.

We also helped serve tables and do dishes at a charity event held by the catholic church right across the street from our own. It was kind of ironic to have Mormon missionaries in a catholic church, but no one said anything negative. 

A story about karma and obedience on your mission: one of the elders in our zone decided that he wanted to buy a PSP with his freshly deposited MSF money. He already owed another elder $35, but he dropped $135 on this PSP at a pawn shop, with the promise that if it didn't work he could bring it back. Either it didn't work or he changed his mind, but he went back and tried to get his money back, the guy refused and denied he said that, but he would buy it from him for $50. He left, went to 2 other pawn shops that said the same thing, and so he sold it for $50. Welcome to day 1 of the month with only $15 left. That's why you don't break the rules and be stupid.

I also always almost run out of money, so I've vowed to have at least $30 at the end of this month.

We found 2 new investigators last night, and they seem pretty freaking golden to me. We'll follow up Tuesday with reading a part of and praying about the Book of Mormon. The investigator of the other elders has only had 2 cigarettes in the past week, so he's doing phenomenally well. Fasting works. I only have one picture, so I'll send it next week with hopefully some more.
