So I worked Monday.
Popcorn had tumbling.
This means that Brent has to grab the girls directly from the bus rush her to throw on some tumble appropriate attire and head out the door. Apparently in the midst of this chaos and rush, rush, rush, our neighborhood LDS boys came by for an offer of prayer.
"Hi, I'm Elder Ott and this is Elder Frock. We were wondering if there was anything you needed to pray about today."
Elder Ott and Elder Frock? Surely he misheard. So, he took a gander at their handy dandy name tags, complete with religious affiliation. Just in case he wasn't clear on who they were based on white shirts and black ties...Sure enough. Elder Ott and Elder Frock.
He's so mature. He immediately began to grin great big and swallow back his laughter. "No, not today. But we go to a great church if you'd like to come join us on Sundays. Our pastor is great. He does a lot of teaching out of the Bible. We'd love to have you come visit." And he told them the location and times of service.
"Yeah, we know that one, it's a really big church. Well, do you know anyone in your neighborhood that might need prayer?"
Brent helpfully said, "You can visit the house at the end on the left. Knock on their door and maybe you can get them to come."
"Do you know their name?" asked one of the Elders.
"No, you rarely see them, but maybe you can get them to come out in the daylight."
"Is this a setup?" Apparently Elder Ott and Elder Frock haven't always experienced love and kindness in their prayer walks...
"No! I've just never seen them outside. It's like the Sasquatch that lives in your neighborhood. You KNOW he's there, but you never see him."
And at this Elder Ott and Elder Frock turned around and walked away.
Huh. Such a surprise.
Stay tuned, there's more to come! Tomorrow we will learn about Brent's "street cred." It promises to be an exciting adventure!
