Yoruba at African store. Fri, Sep 29, 2006.
09/29/2006. 727. A little variety store near a corner has been there for years, but only today did I drive close enough to see the word "African" as part of the lettering on the front window. I decided to stop in. It was a small food, clothing, and variety stype store. A very nice lady from Nigeria was the clerk, and I assume the owner too. I shopped a little, and bought some stuff that I like.
She spoke Yoruba, and she helped me with some pronunciation of some words that I picked up from a multi-media language CD. I offered her the Sunday school manual (Gospel Fundamentals) in Yoruba and English, and she was enthusiastic about receiving it. I took my purchases out to the car, and brought back in the Yoruba and English Gospel Fundamentals.
She expressed interest in attending church, so I pointed out the Mission Office phone number, and also wrote down the sister missionaries' phone number.
This store is close to where the sister missionaries live. I'll give them this info for a follow-up, and give them a couple dollars to purchase something.
