February 22, 2016 - Weird food

Hey everyone!

So this week has been weird and sad all at the same time. It is sad
because all of our investigators broke up with us!!! I thought we were
doing so good and everything but then they just stopped contacting us
and we could never get ahold of them, and even when we did schedule a
lesson they wouldn't always show up! I guess it could be because most
of them don't have phones, or cars, or homes... One of my favorite
investigators, Maranda, disappeared. It broke my heart! She has so
much potential, so so much. But I just don't know what to do to help
her. A very wise lady whom we help feed the homeless and the shelter
could tell my companion and I were troubled so she hugged us both and
just said give it to the Lord. She is part of another religion, of
which i can't remember, but I love her so much! She calls us her
daughters, it is awesome.

So Saturday was my click day, meaning I have been out an entire month
now. Don't ask me why they call it that, my companion doesn't even
know so we just roll with it. But on Saturday we got to do service at
a Lutherine church where they fed the homeless like a feast! There was
crab, ribs, potatoes, and really good expensive stuff like that. Then
there was weird stuff like moose links, raccoon, rabbit, and something
else that looked funny but I can't remember what it was called. I was
serving food as they would come by, some tried to come by twice, we
had to tell them no cuz there were a lot of people to feed. One of
these people in particular tried to come through, she was deaf and
talked in sign language. The lady next to me told her she couldn't
come by for seconds. To this the deaf lady got angry then looked at
me, called me ugly and said I was going to Hell. It was quite
exciting.... But on the up side I got to eat moose, rabbit, raccoon,
crab legs,  and something else that tasted like chicken but wasn't
chicken! So that was exciting!

Then after that service we went to a baptism for some of our elders.
At the baptism, the girl getting baptized had a sister there who was
really really drunk. She was yelling and running around.... The elders
were stressed, but it was definitely something I had never experienced

So that was my week! I love you all!

  1. It's so good to hear from you Sis. Johnson!! And to hear all that is hsppening there. My family left Anchorage after living there ten years. We left for economic reason when the parents divorced. But many people who have fallin into rough times just stay and try to make it. I have heard that the homeless numbers have gone up so much since the last recession. It's hard since so many other problems come to them but what a great blessing that you can help lighten their day with your smile and service! I know this is a blessing for them and you even though its hard to see at times. Don't you just love the views there? I hope a good member can take you out to Portage glacier down Seward highway. Seward was my playground growing up. So beautiful! You will see the "SLEEPING LADY" mountain. God bless you sweet sister missionary. We are praying for you to have contact with those who are ready to hear the gospel message as well as those who are down trodden, that you can be a blessing to their lives.
