Another update

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.

What I have been doing and more…

Every Thursday evening here at MBC we have ministry night, in which we do our assigned ministry. They allowed us to choose the three ministries we wanted to do the most, (out of radio, printing, bus, Sunday School, home Bible Study, IT, and more. Then we will be assigned our ministries based on where we are needed, but hopefully also where we want to be. Until they assign us the ministry, the last two Thursdays everyone has been doing bus visitation.

Also, today I dressed up real nice and dropped of three applications at workplaces where you cannot submit one online. My roommate Dustin had a job interview today and got a job stocking at Toys R Us. His job is from 5-11 in the mornings.

I bought an ottoman that opens up to put stuff inside, and that has made the room seem a little bit bigger. My roommate Jake dropped the iron and broke it, but I used a lot of scotch tape (yes, the gift wrap stuff) and it works good now, for the last three days.

Class has been good, lots of note-taking and memorization. It will be five weeks after this class completes before I get my final grade. (Classes run one week long, and there is only one class per week.)

I’ve been loving my cell phone, thousands of free applications, and I have used the built in GPS quite a bit, Just say aloud where you want to go, and it voice-directs you there. It is pretty amazing.

I received a box today from Grandma Helen- some yummy cookies in it and a birthday card (I don’t care if it’ s late, I’ ll always take money 😉 ) Also received a letter from mom. I will write back, mom! (love you!)

There is about every store you can imagine nearby in this town: Menards, Lowes, Big Lots, Target, KMart, walMart, Kohls, Gordmans, Dollar Tree, Savers, Best Buy, Sears, JCPenney, CVS, Walgreens, Scheels Sports, TJ Maxx, and a bazillion more.  Resturants? KFC, Pizza hut, Little Caesaers, Quiznos, Subway, McDonalds, A&W, Long John Silver’s, Arbys, Wendys, Taco bell, Burger King, and a ton more. I even stopped at Perkins once when I hadn’t had supper, was starving after class, and it was 9pm. I cleaned the plate, believe me!

I will keep you updated as things progress.
