Moment #559. Chinese at gas station. Thu, Apr 20, 2006

04/20/2006. After leaving the restaurant I went to the gas station in front of it. The lady behind the counter and the man stocking shelves looked Asian. I bought some soda pop. There were two people behind me in line when I paid, but I just asked a quick "what languages do you speak?" and "where are you from?" She said she spoke Cantonese and was from Hong Kong. I asked if I could bring in some free books in Chinese to show her, and she said okay. It only delayed the people behind me about 5 or 6 seconds.

I brought in the Chinese/English bilingual New Testament, a Traditional Chinese and an English Book of Mormon, and a multi-lingual Together Forever DVD that has a Cantonese audio track. I really like the DVD idea because small business owners have little time to read, and they are more likely to pop in a DVD to watch when they are tired after a long hard day. The inexpensive Chinese/English bilingual New Testament is in Traditional Chinese, so that worked out.

There were two people ahead of me when I went back in, but nobody behind me while I gave her the books, so I didn't waste anyone's time.
