Hindi at restaurant. Wed, Oct 10, 2007.
10/10/2007. 900. I was at the church storehouse for part of the afternoon. I stopped at a chain restaurant on my way home for an early supper. The couple operating the restaurant were from India. I offered the husband a free church magazine and a free church book in Hindi. I made sure to point out it was Christian material. He agreed to receive them, so I went out to the car and brought back a Hindi Liahona and Hindi Book of Mormon. He graciously accepted them, looked through them just a little, and then went on working cleaning up. It was a friendly encounter, and they seemed like very nice people.
Eating outside of the normal rush hours for lunch and supper makes it easier to talk to the owners/employees at restaurants. Talking with the public is part of their business, and as long as you're not taking them away from other duties or customers, they never seem to mind.
