2010, August

in #j4 years ago

Attended my third Western Youth Institute (WYI) of The Salvation Army, an annual week long Bible retreat designed for youth and young adults up to the ages of like 25 years old. I was 25 that year, meaning it would be my last time as a camper. Well, it ended up being my last and only visit to WYI in the 2010's, that decade. I really do love WYI and I was able to run into a bunch of interesting people.

Criminal Minds

I needed a place to stay. In July of 2010, I moved in with Charlotte Battle who would volunteer with The Salvation Army. She is like a missionary. She knew Blake Webb who died in May. She was a friend of ours and decided to help me out. She introduced me to Criminal Minds and I started watching ever since. She would also watch Bones which I also started getting hooked on. I did chores around the house for her. I continued helping with the youth ministry at Moore Street from 2009-2011.

Salvation Army

During the 2010 WYI, I had a conversation with Rob Noland and Fulton Hawk. They said some things to me and they may have disagreed with some of the things I might have said and done. Some of it mya have been allegations, hearsay, of things I was being accused falsely of doing or saying. I'm not totally sure as some of it may have been implied, assumed, referenced, indirect, implicated, left unsaid in regards what they might have wanted me not to do and do. Our conversation may have only lasted ten minutes and they may have been upset and disappointed with me. I was trying to tell them that I try to follow God's heart in what I do. Rob was probably a bit sad and Fulton may have been situated in passion and rage. I believe in passion and I'm not saying he is wrong to be aggressive but I do believe in what I do perhaps. Not to say that I don't evolve and change over time in my life. I do mature and everything as some people do. Long story short, I was telling them that I would continue to do what I do. Now, that is not entirely true as I do change like I said but I said it as my way of pleading for independence so that I can make my own personal decisions on my own as need be. They talked about how I burn bridges with people and they may have been specifically talking about burning a bridge with The Salvation Army. After that, I was not accepted to work at Salvation Army camps in 2011, 2012, 2018, and 2019. I was in Vietnam from 2012-2017. I returned in November of 2017 to America and applied again to camps and was denied. I feel that I might be on a Salvation Army black list. I hope I am wrong about that. But it is possible that they and/or others said some bad things about me to get me banned from working in certain positions with them ever again. I have been feeling very mixed concerning that and my relationship with Word Of Life, other ministries, other churches, other organizations, other camps, other groups, other people, etc, etc, who I have volunteered with and worked with in my life. I miss so many different people I've met in Oregon, New York, West Virginia, California, Hawaii, Washington State, Idaho, Quebec, Vietnam, some of the states and cities in and around New York, West Virginia, and South Carolina, etc, etc. I contemplate how I can better help people, when, where, how, through which groups, etc. I have been thinking about these types of things for over 30 years going back to the 1990's. I have more to say about some of these things. It is very complex and simple and everything. To be continued.

2010-08-13 - Scott Pilgrim vs. the World - I eventually saw it at least by 2012 or possibly as early as 2010 thanks to the fact that Matt Kurtz and his friends were watching it and I just so happened to be in the right place at the right time.
