Week #64 - Wedding Rings and Grafting
This week was full of fun stuff.
In an attempt to help these people we are teaching finalize marriage plans for the end of May, the branch president in Junction sent us on a scouting mission for wedding rings and prices and stuff, hopefully they can get some monetary help so it is not an issue. Yeah, I know, what do two 19 year old boys know about wedding rings... But we did a good job gathering price ranges trust me. Elder Hansen and I will probably open up some type of a ring broker shop when we get back because we are so good at what we do.
We went to zone meeting in Mandeville on Wednesday and a senior couple made us pulled pork tacos... PULLED PORK TACOS?!?!?! Are you kidding me? I haven't had tacos in years!!
We helped President Collins organize his greenhouse on Thursday (did I mention our branch president is blind? Yeah he has been blind for about five years from deteriorating vision). So we moved a bunch of plants and got to watch someone graft and orange, lemon, AND lime branch onto the same tree so it will bear all three fruit later on... Jacob 5 makes so much more sense now that I have literally seen the grafting process. Except instead of dung to stick the branch on, he used eco tape that has fertilizer grains laced within. High tech, I know.
President and Sister Brown came to church on Sunday. We had two investigators there. They came late, but they got to hear Pres Brown teach a class about preparing for the millennium so that was way cool for them. I hope they understood it haha.
Well that's about it for this week. Congrats on adding one more to the Esselman family Britt and Adam!
