Week 6: Vallejo Loves Service!!!

November 10, 2014

Hey everybody! Hope you all had a great week! I don't have a ton of time to write, like usual, so this one will probably be a little short.

I honestly can't even remember the first half of my week, and I'm sure I've forgotten almost all of the cool things that happened this week, so sorry. On Saturday, just a couple days ago, we had the opportunity to do service for most of the day! Saturday was a big city service day, where differs groups got together to clean up a cemetery! The cemetery that we went to was pretty huge, and there where probably about 100 volunteers. Half of us raked up pine needles and leaves and tied them up in big tarps, and hauled them to a dumpster, while the other half shovel led and spread mulch! We worked from 8 am to 12, then had pizza afterwards as lunch :) it was really fun to do something a little different!

Oh! I can't believe I almost forgot. One of our new members had us over for lunch again! The same ones that gave us pig feet! Well this time we just had some really spicy soup/lentils with unidentifiable meet in it. It was pretty good. But the interesting part happened after the dinner. For the next 2 hours, they told us about all of their experiences with demons in their house. It was pretty freaky what they were telling us. Like, about her being dragged out of her bed and down the hallway at night…Or tons of other worse stuff that I won't write about. Well, we were talking to them and trying to figure out what was causing everything, and finally we found out that one of their family members is practicing candle magic in the garage and performing other satanic rituals. Yeah. Stay away from that stuff, guys. We talked to them about it, and told them to stop, and then we came back and said a prayer, and called on the priesthood to remove the spirits. Man... That was an interesting experience.

On Sunday, yesterday, we had branch council! The stake president was here from Napa, and one of his councilors. For the first hour, the stake president had all of us missionaries come to the front of the class, and asked the members to think of the very hardest questions they could and we would answer them. Yeah, thanks president. Haha, but really, it was a pretty good experience. The questions weren't that hard, and we were able to answer them all. :) In sacrament meeting, I'm not sure exactly what happened, but we went 50 minutes over. That's right. 50 minutes. So our church was from 9:30-1:20. It was awesome ;)

Well, that's all I have for this week! I hope you all have an awesome time, wherever you are! Love you all!
