Good day of distribution today. As far as sheer numbers, This was probably the most I handed out of any day. Our group was at a festival and it was crowded!

I was perusing one of my favorite websites for good deals on Saturday, and found that there was a big school supply sale going on at Best Buy- where almost everything was 50 cents. I stopped by, and to my surprise the area was untouched! I grabbed up tens of dozens of items and loaded up a few bags. Below are two out of the three pages of receipt that I got. Notice the final price – $63.21 – and the amount saved $925.00!!!
Here is a look at the load I brought back – note the packs of yellow post its – Those are 10 packs of 90 super sticky notes with MRSP of over $14.00 each! And yes, they were 50 cents.On Monday after the church picnic and softball game, I decided it was time to put some of the post-its to good use. So I orchestrated a massive vehicle post-itification. Those participating other than myself were Janek Burton, Jake Alexander, Ryan O’Leary, Barbara Burkholder, Joshua Griffin, Lucas Iforgothislastname, and some others who stopped by for a little bit to help out. The vehicle belongs to dear Amanda Hooper, and I hear she took it all in stride when she discovered the decoration.
However, before she had a chance to discover it, things went from good to best, when it began to rain about an hour later. The notes are the more expensive super sticky kind, so the rain didn’t knock them off, it just paper-mache’d them to Amanda’s car.
Here in Fargo we have a local website like Groupon or LivingSocial called SaveCoin. At this website they list a deal every day in which you can get gift certificates or services to local businesses half off or even better.
So when I saw a deal for a $20 gift certificate to the local Acapulco Mexican Restaurant for $10 I thought I would give it a try. So this morning on lunch break, I headed down to check the place out.
As soon as I was seated, a basket of chips and a small bowl of salsa was placed in front of me. I also recieved a pitcher of water. So far I was loving this place. I barely had time to indulge, when the waiter asked for my order, and I decided on the Chicken enchilada. It came with beans and rice as well. There were many other folks at the resturant, but it was barely three minutes before the food was delivered to me.
I enjoyed the whole experience very much, and the real kicker was the price of course. It came to $6.45, but I only paid half that because of the deal I got. I would have to give this place a five star for service, and I will be sure to go back, well, because I have $13 more of gift certificate to spend there.
I have been assigned to the printing ministry here at Fargo Baptist Church. This means I will be helping with the tracts that are printed. Jake and Sam were assigned to the Bus Ministry, and Dustin to the radio ministry.
Tomorrow us four will be going over to the Scheving’s to paint their barn. I bought some used clothes at Saver’s so I could not worry about getting mine messy. I filled up my printer’s continuous ink supply system yesterday so that I could continue to print stuff dirt cheap. I have been printing off stuff for class and it works out very nice. I also went to Wal-Mart yesterday and bought a folding chair and table, and set them up in the dorm. It looks very nice, and things seem quite organized now. We are finally getting completely settled in.
This morning, since Jake and Sam are in the bus ministry, they had to be out he door at 8, so Dustin and I cleaned up the dorm, since Bro Schatz said inspections will be on Sunday afternoons. So right now there are clean floors, no dirty dishes, and it all looks nice and clean.
Since the wireless internet still is spotty, Brother Venem gave us all ethernet cables and switches, so I duct-taped one from the port in the kitchen along the floor into the dorm room. It works quite nice, and I don’t have to worry about working 30 minutes to get the wireless working in the morning. It should be working completely in two weeks or so.
I printed off some coupons for our meal and the four of us also went out to Long John Silver’s today. It was a first for two of them. Dustin got a job as a morning stocker at Toy’s R Us, he will be starting Thursday. When I told him about applying at Menards, I was surprised to hear he didn’t know what Menards was. Of course, there are no Menards stores in Maine.
Yes, this post is not very flowing, and a lot of random info, but I hope it keeps you updated.
Sitting here doing my laundry. Last time I had to go several miles, But this time I found a laundromat that was a lot closer. It’s a little bit cheaper, too. This is my first blog post from my new phone. And I didn’t type any of it. I’m just saying it into my phone and it turns it into text.
I’m thinking about going inline skating at the huge skatepark they have here in fargo, later today.
Classes have been going well, job search is still on. I did get my cell phone in the mail today. My cell phone number (on which I have unlimited talk/text/web is (701)-200-55<four>7 (the strange four is to keep from getting spammy texts) Been doing some random driving around Fargo and Moorhead, MN, just to find new places. I drive without a map, and get in all kinds of places, and go back by a different route. I always seem to get back just fine when i keep heading in the right direction.
My address is

Thanks for reading!
…And Saturday was day #1. First we had orientation for four hours. All kinds of stuff about internet, dress, etc. Very well put, and all good rules. Then at noon we had classes until 5. We had to take notes, which comprise 40% of the grade. So today and yesterday we refined our notes which must be turned in by tomorrow at class. Tomorrow is a labor day picnic and softball game, might attend, but still need to memorize some verses as well. Bought some rechargeable batteries for my camera today.
A few days ago we got our student ID’s as well. The christian book store gives 40% off with a college ID. Several resturants give 10% off. This is a college town.
We will soon find out what our church ministry will be. I will keep you all posted!
