Sister Pat describes one of her favorite adventures with housemate (and podcast host!) Sister Rejane. Guest: Sister Pat Johannsen.
Sister Patricia Johannsen, SCL, grew up on a farm in Montana, and answered God's call to religious life by joining the Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth in faraway Kansas. She spent over four years in South Sudan, training teachers as part of the Solidarity with South Sudan ministry. She currently serves at the Interfaith Community of Hope, a homeless shelter in Leavenworth.

I just have to say, you know, it's kind of great to talk to a sister from my same community, Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth, and that we actually are living together in this awesome house. And now of course, Pat, you are slightly older than I, and have a very different vocation story. But we certainly have shared a lot of adventures in our six months together, wouldn't you say?
Yes, I would.
So, any of our joint adventures you'd like to share with our audience that really sticks out for you?
Well, I think the biggest joint venture was getting rid of the fleas when the bug man didn't work, and you researched using salt. And we salted the house, and that took care of our fleas.
Yes, especially since you and I have a love of the environment and trying to use organic materials and so it actually proved it worked better than the chemicals. Right?
