Oh well, life goes on. Here is Elder Rebalkin's email for the week. It's so Mason.
We were visiting with a less active and afterwards we did the good missionary thing, which was to ask for referrals. He directed us to his only neighbor (about 2 or so miles up a dirt road) but warned us that we may or may not receive us well, but that he liked company. So we went up the road until we came to a little cabin/shack sitting in a little clearing. The front door was one of those doors that is kind of split of half so that the top can swing open and still have the bottom closed. As Elder Crosby was about to knock, the top half swung open. I don't know why, but I noticed that his house was so small that his fridge was next to his bed faster than I noticed that he was pointing a gun at us. Oddly enough even after noticing his gun we still asked him, "Are you Ron?"
He kind of glanced around then said "...I might be"
In short, he declined us and we went on our way. Its Kind of a fun story I guess.
Just for fun here are some things that I have heard people say:
1. "If the Jews are right, then the devil is gonna have a lot of company, 'cuz we've been worshiping a false idol for 2,000 years!"
2. "Was Jesus actually on Earth at one point?" After we told her that he lived in Jerusalem she said, "Jerusalem is a real place?!"
3. Anytime someone refers to a truck as being a "rig"
4. The saying "A couple three"
6. lots of people say "Wershington" not"Washington"
7. "wershed" instead of "washed"
I can't wait for the day when I hear someone say, "A couple three days ago I took my rig up to Wershington where I got wershed away in a crick"
Oh yeah, so we were at a less-active members house and asked if I could use his bathroom, he got kind of uncomfortable then told me that I might change my mind when I see it. He told me to jut go around the corner and I'll see what he meant. Keep in mind that his cabin was basically just one big room divided in half by a wall. I went went to the other side of the wall and sure enough, there was his bed, the bathtub and the toilet just right there in the open. I looked up and realized that I could see both him, and my companion through the cracks in the wall. Yup... I changed my mind about how badly I really had to go.
