"HOORAH FOR ISREAL!!"
ELDER JEFFREY LANGFORD'S WEEKLY UPDATE: OCTOBER 22, 2012
Hey everyone! Blog time!
It’s been a fantastic week! Probably one of the most successful I’ve had in the mission field so far! We did a variety of things, and it’s been awesome!
One interesting tid bit, when I went on exchanges with the district leader, we talked all the way home about our area, what we were doing to improve even more, and how our unity as a companionship was going (Elder Clegg and I). After we talked about it for a while, he started going off at how he thinks I should seriously consider going into marriage counseling… Haha I didn’t know what to think of that… what do you think? Me a marriage counselor? I’ve never considered that job before… Hmmm… interesting that he brought it up, and I gave it a little thought this week… I figure I should get into this whole marriage business myself before I start telling people how to do it.
Also, I found out that someone in my ward was really good friends and grew up with the Bracey family! Spread the message to them saying that Kevin Dick says hi! Crazy connections! The stars must be aligned and what not.
We had a crazy service opportunity! We helped a member clean out this shed outside his house… I have seriously never seen so many spiders, ants, cockroaches, crickets, and etc!!! Man I actually got a couple Goosebumps from that! Pleh… good thing we had a can of raid… we wiped out civilizations of infestation! Sooooo many bugs… Hollie’d be dead if she even saw it -_- A couple hours after that, we went over to help an investigator family with their pumpkins… they didn’t really think about the fact that pumpkins are veggies, and when left out in the sun for an extended period of time, will grow mold… In fact, about half of each of the pumpkins was covered in a delightsome smelling black, hairy, thick MOLD! Suuuuper nasty!!! So we cleaned those up, and shared a couple tips, such as carving your pumpkins a little later in the season… Haha please, for your own sakes as well, do not let your pumpkins grow afro molds… it’s not the style, and will ruin your appetite/Halloween.
