things that happened that I'll mention later! First off, we put one of
our investigators on date for baptism after some solid lessons.
Though, she hasn't been reading or praying or going to church sooooo
yeah we'll see how that goes! But she's a way cool person in like her
40s with two teenage sons but they don't seem interested much! Other
than that it's been more finding, more lessons falling through and more
interesting weather. It's started to get pretty sunny a few days this
week, and hit a high of 70 outside. That was awesome. But then
promptly the next day it rains and drops to like 35 somehow and
started hailing. Then it went back to being sunny that afternoon then
rained again at like 7. Bipolar weather much? Jeeze. But that's pretty
much been our week, so onto the crazy stories yeah? So last night
(Sunday night) we walk to the church at like 8:30 pm to sync our Ipads
and report lessons and such. This is normal stuff so no big deal.
Anyways we have to the bathroom so we go to the back of the church building
where the bathrooms are and as were walking we see shadows moving
outside. We're like what the freak there was no cars here and all the
lights were off... So we are super sketched out at this point and take
a peek outside and see some couple setting up their camper trailer
thing, and have electric cords running to the church outside outlets.
We have no idea who or what they are. We figured it's some people
camping out the night (it's legal in Oregon to just pull over to the
side of any road and camp the night apparently for like a week at a
time or just straight up live on someones driveway or something like
that) anyways, we give the bishop a call to see if he knew anything
about it, he doesn't and suggests calling the other ward's bishop. So we
do, and he has no idea and says go out and talk to them, see if they
are members, and if they are, they are cool to stay the night but if
they arent, they need to leave. So we casually just like stroll out
the door like we had no idea they were there and were like "ohhhh hey
can we help you guys...?" And they are like "oh missionaries!!!! We're
members!" And they start giving like their ward info and using the right
terms and stuff and they seemed legit. I guess they are here to redo
the floors of the gym because they are some ma and pa floor
refinishing crew the church uses. So we call bishop back up, and talks
to them and gives them the okay (bishop didn't know they were coming
either lol) but its all good, they had like legit equipment so yeah,
all good. Anyways we help them unload some stuff and set it in the
church, then gave them our card with our number incase they got locked
out or needed and extra hand. We talk a bit then head home. By this
time its like 9:30. Well by 10:15 we get a call from them.
I guess they were looking for some cleaning stuff and went to the
janitors closet. He opens it and lo and behold there is a FREAKING
HOMELESS GUY SLEEPING INSIDE THE JANITORS CLOSET. INSIDE THE CHURCH.
So he called us, escorted the guy out and went and secured all the
doors to the building. We called the bishop of the other ward because
ours didnt answer and he was laughing a bit and was all "hmmm, thats
weird, we'll send someone out" all casually like that was no big
deal??? We have no clue how, when, or how long he's been there. All the
doors lock behind you unless you have a special key from the inside.
We were with the people unloading stuff the whole time, so he couldn't
have snuck in then. We figured either a door was left open, or he came
in during Sunday church and just hid out in the freaking janitor's
closet. Either way, thats sketch and like not safe. So yeah, thats my
crazy story for the week. Check your closets kiddos, there might be a
hobo sleeping in it.
