Day 9: Pinched

Tueday, regular start.

Went to to church ended up coming 20 minutes earlier. Saw Steven for the first time since I saw him at service during my start at the church. Steven is now Mark. Bible study with Alma and Karen. Was about being patient with God, because patience is love. Went evangelizing with Mark, it was alright, Steven is very forward with his love of God, I can’t be that way. I evangelized a man I will call R, was pretty weird, especially the tone he used when telling me he will see me later. I became really uncomfortable after that. Didn’t really evangelize a lot. I still feel like a hypocrite doing it. Got a couple of contacts, J from another church said he will help us get more English speaking people, since his church is only preaches in Spanish. Went back to church. I then went home because I didn’t have money to go to OU. Everyone was sad, it’s heartbreaking, but what am I going to do? I have no means of making money.

 

At home, I played Fire Pro Wrestling Returns with my brother, we got it yesterday. It’s a really fun game, I have to learn how to reverse and get offense in better, so I don’t end up losing most of the matches.

Medieval 2: Total War Sicily update! I’ve made a huge mistake, my armies are scattered around Europe and don’t support each other well. I’m going to have to abandon this. I was doing good till this happened.

Day 9 END

Day 8: Checkpoint

Day started with usual then Church.

Only one Bible study and no YEF, because Alma was not feeling well. I didn’t really mind. Day 8 of the 40 days, it’s a checkpoint.

At home, relaxed and then watched RAW. RAW was great, the Bryan/Cena promo was top notch till HHH and Orton came out for no real reason. Christian video package was not expected, but it was really heartwarming. I’m a big fan of Christian, I wished he would get better reactions from people though. Brock and Punk ended the show with Punk standing tall. Good RAW

Day 8 END

Day 7: Service

Early morning for me, 12 pm prayer hit when I was half-dressed. Then went to church.

Sunday Service went well. Amanda did it, is was about being persistent about praying. Even if God does not answer immediately, he will answer when the time is right. Talked to everyone about the message and 40 days. Everyone is rooting for me, feels nice. Went shopping with Andy too. Andy is probably my best bud in the church. Everyone is nice.

Went home, wrote reflection. Total Divas continues to be the biggest work I have seen. Breaking Bad is back and it’s BACK. It’s really good.

Day 7 END

Day 6: Laundry

Prayed in the morning.

I did laundry for most of the day, also just hanging out with my brothers.  Just a relaxing day, no church.

Then the G1 Climax Final. Yano Toru upset Suzuki. Benjamin won a great match with Nakamura. Devitt brought a monkey mask with him and punched some fans who tried to steal it. Tanahashi and Naito advance to the Finals. Anderson had a great match with Naito, but it was kinda bad how Naito kicked out of a SUPER STUN GUN and a BERNARD DRIVER. Naito won the whole thing, not my pick, but it was a good choice. He needs that to get back into the spot he was before injury. Ended going to sleep at about 5 AM.

Day 6 END

Day 5: I need FIVE

The day started out with the usual I passed the vacuum, didn’t clean the kitchen floor though.

Went to church for two bible studies and a prayer meeting. finished Rome 1-3, then Alma told me their was a quiz. I have not take one since I was in school. Prayer meeting at 6:30 went well. Yunsook came and told us Brooklyn Church found a spot and that she will be going their. I wish her the best of luck and pray for the new church to prosper.

Not much home, barely any wrestling until late night, where me and my brother saw the Kevin Steen show with Elgin. It was great, I enjoyed it alot.

Medieval 2:Total War Sicily Update! Expanded a lot, Ceasefire with the Moors, which is good so I can focus on Genoa and the Byzantine empire which have started to come after my territories.

Day 5! 5! 5! 5! 5! END

Day 4: Headache

Started the day with a prayer, then did daily stuff till church.

On the way to church this weird headache arose. It only affected the right side of my head.  It was really difficult to get through to first bible study, Alma noticed but I think she half-believed me. No evangelism because of the rain, so another audio message of Pastor Anna, headache was not as frequent, the 2nd study helped me with my worries of money for the metro card, worrying for metrocard funds to go to a bbs is a funny oxymoron to me. Then I went to OU, unplanned, I didn’t bring food, so I only ate some bread and soup Karen got. Three Bible studies this day, IRONMAN run. Pastor Anna is really excited that I know spanish cause the church doesn’t have a lot of spanish speakers in New York. Talked about El Salvador, then she gave everyone an assignment, which I really don’t feel like doing, but I’ll try.

On the way to OU I talked to Karen about this blog, she said that I should just keep it personal. After giving it some thought, I probably will keep this blog to myself for record.

I went home, but I apparently worried my parents because I didn’t specify I was coming home from downtown, I felt bad. Watched Impact, mostly as background noise. I don’t really care for most of Impact aside from a few segments like the formation of Roode, Daniels, Kazarian stable.

Medieval 2: Total War update! Expanding to Moorish and Fatmid territories, its been a slow burn campaign. Also this is a Late Era campaign.

Day 4 END

Day 3: Back to Back

Today started out with prayer, the I went on doing some stuff until church. I made the smart decision in making a sandwich for the day ahead.

First bible study was about Romans 3, then as soon as I finished my reflection, the next bible study had begun. The second one was an audio message, featuring Pastor Anna, about John 8. It was kind of weird but I adjusted to it quickly. Then their was an hour long wait until the service. I ate a sandwich then read some of Matthew, for the goal. I never knew that Jesus was in Egypt, learn new something new everyday. Karen came with a watermelon, apparently she came late, and she shared it with us. It was good, and I continued reading Matthew, until service. The YEF Trio arrived and not much conversation aside from a hi . I don’t think I even said a word to Dorothy. Wednesday service was about how only our spirit can enter the Kingdom of heaven. I also didn’t plug the blog. I should reveal it after Sunday service, since people stick around after and it’s early. I then went home.

I typed up the daily reflection before the deadline, good job me. Had some food and watched an episode of Three Kingdoms (2010). I have watched about 75 episodes of it, I really enjoy it, each episode is about 45 minutes and in Chinese, I watch it with English subtitles. I didn’t watch any wrestling today, I am not looking forward to Impact tomorrow, but I’ll watch it out of habit. Last weeks episode ended with Tito Ortiz standing  on the ramp for two minutes and everyone else just reacting to him, it was really bad. Goto and Tenzan are out of the G1 climax due to injury, Goto was one of my picks to win it. I hope it’s not a severe injury.

In a Medieval 2: Total War Sicily update! I conquered a rebel castle. These rebel armies have crusader knights and feudal knights. Why do the rebels around Greece have way better troops than me, and they have a full army! It’s gonna be tough to beat them. I am also conquering Moor territory, some of the cities and castles don’t have many troops so they are going to be easy to conquer.

I’m not sure if I should show this blog to people from the church, because it’s mostly going to be about stuff that has nothing to do with church. But then what is the point of making this, if I’m not going to show anybody? I will probably show it to Andy first and get his opinion on it.  It has only been 3 days, it feels that a longer time has passed. This is going to be a real test of endurance for me.

Day 3 END
