Alright well do I have some stories to tell this week!! Should I start off with the spiritual one or the funny one... I'm gonna go with spiritual because if I go funny first the spiritual one might get shafted....
So we did 2 exchanges this week. One was tuesday to wednesday, and the other was wednesday to thursday, back to back. On Tuesday I left and went to Hillsboro with a new missionary, and then on Wednesday I was here in Beaverton with an Elder from Portland. His name is Elder Gregory, he got to Portland (which is a pretty slow, hard area) when I got to Tigard, he was trained by Elder Goff, and came out right after Soriano. he is a farmer hick kid from somewhere in Utah...
So anyways it was around 4 on Wednesday (this exchange had started at 2 after district meeting), and we were just leaving the library, we had been doing some online teaching on FB. As we were leaving, a man stopped us and asked us for money, explaining his story which I don't remember a lot of, but their house was getting fumigated that night and they needed a place to stay. Anyways, I've been asked by people quite a few times for money, and he seemed pretty legit. But, when he asked, deep down I really just didn't want to give him any. Elder Gregory pulled out his wallet and gave the man $7. As we were walking away, I felt ashamed for being so selfish. I remembered what President Eyring had said in Conference about helping others,
Ok story time. (edited for content :) for details, please ask Elder Jorgensen in person anytime after July14 ;)
mom as to your questions about being a zone leader on sundays... there are 3 sets of spanish missionaries attached to our group, so the 3 of us cover the stake. we are an appendage of the Beaverton ward, but are in charge of the group. so no,thankfully no other meetings... the extra meetings are 2 district meetings every week instead of just 1, and MLC (mission leadership council) every month.
anyways... I love you guys! Have a good week!
Ferzulis also got baptized!!
