Bus Stop, Bus Goes...

This morning I went with Amanda on her early morning preaching exercise, and we started off at a bus stop near our house. It is a rich field, obviously people are waiting for their buses so they are happy to talk - if you are quick enough you can at least read one scripture to them before their ride comes. Gotta be careful though approaching some of the men - they think they can take the opportunity to hit on you - not just a problem for the young and beautiful among us!

Then we headed down town as on Tuesdays our congo helps out the central cong with their business territory. I am so out of my comfort zone when we are  going into lawyers offices etc and sometimes Amanda has to tell me to breathe - but we hardly ever get a negative response. In fact we had two lawyers invite us to sit down for a discussion so hopefully I will get more comfortable with the Tuesday groups.
Yeah - the big gun kind of put us off
going into this store!

Oh, it must be so refreshing to preach in a territory where you can at least have conversations.....I can't wait to get over there. We are still in the investigation, planning stages and hope to make a trip over for about a month or so in 2015.
