Yoruba at grocery store. Thu, Mar 6, 2008.

03/06/2008. 1003. I stopped at a grocery store to shop, and one of the employees who waited on me spoke with an accent. I said I didn't recognize her accent, and I asked her where she was from. She said Nigeria. I asked if she was Igbo or Yoruba, and she said Yoruba. I said my church has free books in Yoruba, and asked if she'd like to see one. She agreed. So after paying I went out to my car and retrieved a Yoruba copy and an English copy of the Book of Mormon, went back in and presented them to her. She gladly accepted them, and quickly opened flipped through the Yoruba copy. She was busy, so I didn't want to take up her time with extra small talk.
