Chaplain Highlights (2-20-09)

I volunteered my time last night as a chaplain for the Mesa Police Department. Here were some highlights:

  • –Investigated two different (but nearly identical) instances of mothers leaving their three children in the car while they went in and shopped at Wal-Mart. Apparently, this is a growing crime problem in Mesa.
  • –Made my first trip inside the Mesa jail and got cursed out in Spanish.
  • –Ate dinner at a Barcelona/Italy family diner on the SW corner of Lindsay and Main. 5 words: all-you-can-eat-meat
  • –Screamed through about half of Mesa doing Code-3 (lights and sirens)
  • –And spent at least 30 minutes listening to a lady from Vietnam tell me all about her life. I determined that I could only understand one fifth of what she was saying. I did a lot of smiling and nodding. And she did a lot of ceaseless talking. She apparently really likes John McCain.
