November 26, 2013 - Transfers came and went, I stayed. I spent the holiday with the Pickerings. They are from New York and will be moving to the states this summer. Elder Pollock will be my new companion. The Hull Zone is also being split into two zones. I ordered Donner Meat, which I believe I've talked about before, if not don't look it up ...it is suppose to be "lamb, but not many would say it is. But it couldn't be as bad as Hot Dogs.
Any ways, as we were walking to our flat one night a child, no more than 10, began to yell at us mockingly, "Bible bashers! Jesus Believers! and laughing and just generally mocking us. His sister was 4 years younger, caught on after a few more chants by her example of a brother and the parents were just on their porch drinking a lagger. The young boy then began to sing a chant about how we were idiots and the Christ was a fairy-tale, that he just died and was nothing now and we are stupid believers. That stuck the most. We didn't think much of the taunting and we just continued into our building. When we got in the flat my heart went out to the boy and the younger sister. "how could they say that? What child would hold that kind of conviction? What is there I can do to help him?" so many questions I had no answers too come to my heard, and some hostile to the parents for such teachings for surely the boy didn't learn it by his own understanding.
(they aren't only Bible bashers, and proud of it- they know their Book of Mormon too!)
