Journal Gem #7

First, let's finish up Sunday. I just think this is funny: About 4 PM this girl calls me. I think her name was Sarah.

"Hi Laura, I'm just doing my visiting teaching routes."
"Is it ok if we just do last month's visiting teaching over the phone?"
"Sure..." (still wondering who she is)
"Good. So how are you?"
"I'm doing fine." I say, trying not to laugh.
"So do you work? Or are you in school?"

I tell her what I do and she sounds impressed.

"Wow! That sounds like fun."
"Yeah, it is."
"Good. Can I give you the visiting teaching message real quick?"
"All right."
"OK. Well the message is about priesthood blessings and how important they are. And how you shouldn't hesitate to ask for a blessing because it brings blessings to the priesthood holder too."
"Good message."
"Yeah. So is there anything I can do for you?"
"No, but I appreciate you asking."
"All right, well it was nice getting to know you Laura."
"Yeah, you too. Buh bye."

Oh. My. Gosh. That was back in the old days of Club 41, right? El grande barrio? Dang.

No, actually, this was my singles ward in Sandy before I moved to Salt Lake.

I don't think I ever ended up meeting this girl. I had some really good visiting teachers the last little while I was there though.

I love that she said the message was about priesthood blessings, but that's all that was said about it. Haha! If only visiting teaching were that easy.

My new VT partner has met me in the hall over the past two months and told me that she would call the ladies and take care of VT for us because she is so busy with stuff that she can't schedule anything. She then sees my pregnant belly and says she will take care of next month too.

It is a sweet deal.
