Sadly Jared said that he and his companion got food poisoning and spent several days this past week just trying to recover. He had the same problem he had when he was in Kona, throwing up blood when vomiting. But this time he knew what was happening and wasn't so freaked out by it. Sadly it happened three times - no fun!
He did tell a couple of experiences he had this week. One was where he went tracting and was preached at by two girls for half an hour. They told he and his companion that they didn't know what they believe and that they don't preach about Christ. Then after that experience they got yelled at by some random guy. He said they were really tempted to just go home, that it was 8:00 o'clock already and people start getting grumpy about them knocking at that time, and they'd had a really long day/week so they really just wanted to go home, plan, and sleep. But instead they decided to stay out and wound up contacting a part member less active family they had been trying to get a hold of for a long time. The man set up an appointment for them to teach his wife and child. Jared said they got back in the car, started driving and were so happy they'd knocked on that door in the last 40 minutes of their Friday night.
Here's a picture of Jared's zone p-day hike last week which was on a steep ridge right off of Lahilahi street in Waianae. He said it was actually a tricky climb, but fun.
