Sunday, October 11, 2009

Well this Sunday turned out to be “Another Whirlwind adventure for Shrek and Donkey!” We did almost the same thing we did 6 weeks again for the last transfer day. We picked up loads of elder’s luggage, helped transport elders, hauled the mail and to and from “El Campo”, etc. 5:30am to 10:00pm makes a long day on the road and at church services. Add on top the unbearable heat in Branch chapels with no air conditioning and we are physically and mentally drained.

But it wasn’t all work. We do have light moments too. At the Neyba (nay-bah) branch chapel the gate to the church grounds are kept locked all the time except when members are present for meetings. A local herd of goats is allowed to forage for food without supervision. Well, these goats know that it’s Sunday and the gate will be open. Every Sunday morning they come on the run, enter through the open gate and help themselves to the lush green grass, shrubs and they even eat the weeds. The fun starts when the meetings are over and we have to chase them out before we lock the gate behind ourselves. The Elders (who are really overgrown Boy Scouts) delight in the chase.
