Odd Field Experience
Yesterday I had a study scheduled for "Despues Almuerzos" - Which is after lunch.... who knows exactly what time that really is.....
Anyway, I decided to go around 2pm. When the time came I asked around who wanted to come with me - and no one could. Yikes! I didnt think I could quite manage a study on my own yet. But I went any way - and prayed that all would go well, secretly hoping the gentleman would not be home (like all the other 5 or 6 studies I have started so far).
I got there, and after knocking and waiting for 5 minutes, he came out and told me to wait. And so I did, for about another 5 minutes.... He then came out and ushered me inside. Gulp.
So then he went and got his bible and bible teach book and we sat down. Then he says - "ok lets start with prayer" And this is the STRANGE part. As I started - he repeated everything I said! It was so off putting - Especially since my Spanish is only in the basic stages... Later when I told Dad, he said this is actually quite normal.
So then we did the study ( 8 Paragraphs of chapter 3) had a bit of a chat about his situation, and I said it was time for me to leave. I just got ready to pray closed my eyes, and he taps me on the shoulder and says "Hey - Make sure you include my name and my family in this one!" - whoops - I must not have done a good job of the first one.....
All in all though - I left pretty happy to go to some other R/V's / doorstep studies - and guess what? Not at Home.
