Just have to tell you about the funny thing that happened this morning. I was doing a doorstep study with a very nice lady and as they never have their books handy, I pulled out a spare one from my bag for her to read. Explained about needing to pray first, which she was happy with so Mark did the honors and then we got into the book. I asked her what the 3 questions were that we were going to learn about in the chapter and she took a little time to answer so I pointed them out to her only to realize that I had given her my english book!! Poor lady must have thought - how am I going to get through the next 15 minutes with this crazy gringa expecting me to read english! We had a good laugh at my mistake but it just goes to show though how very patient these people are!

If only it was that easy again! You need 2 things to have fun in service: humility and a sense of humor. Good for you for displaying both! :)

That reminds me of the time my husband was offering a book (don't recall which one) & when he opened it to show the householder, it was printed upside down. The cover was one direction and the insides were opposite!! That's not turned out to be in Spanish! What a shock:)

Hey yes it does remind you of the resurrection aye? But those coming out of the ground probably won't take 15 minutes!
PS I understand too!
