Can Jesus get a “WOO HOO”!!?

Posted by Tanille

We chose our spot in the trailer park because it was back in the corner and had the largest yard.  I have never regretted that decision because the yard is completely perfect.  Behind us there is a commercial building, which we thought was perfect, and most days it is.  The tenants are gone by 5:00, we usually never hear or see them and the weekends are peaceful – except for Saturday mornings.  Directly behind our spot is a food bank.  You would never know it was there until the screaming begins. . .

Every Saturday around 9:00 and every Tuesday night around 6:00 it starts.  About 100 people line up against the building.  It’s a little weird.  But that’s not the worst part.  At some point the “lady” in charge comes out to get the people pumped up for Jesus.  She does this by screaming at the top of her lungs about Jesus and how he needs that $5.00 donation to keep providing food for them.  She also insists that the entire group shout “WOOHOO” for Jesus and if she doesn’t feel it’s loud enough she will continue this until she feels Jesus is satisfied.

I’m all for providing food for people in need and yes I do love Jesus.  But I would also really love a quiet Saturday morning once in a while.  I’m just sayin’.

Somehow I ended up in a single-wide trailer, in Reno, Nevada. And somehow I love it. Here is where I tell my story about my trailer, and my passion for small space living, photography, travelling, and running.

  1. Yeah, this lady is nuts. The other day she was on her phone, at the end of the counter, talking as loud as possible while waiting for us to get donation pastries. Everyone was looking at her, like “can’t you talk somewhere else? or keep it down?” It made me see her in a new light once I read this. Ohhh, the joys of customer service.
