Punjabi pamphlet at storefront. Fri, Oct 23, 2009.
10/23/2009. 1197. I was at a strip mall type shopping center on my way to dinner at a Chinese restaurant that I've already been to. I walked past a storefront, and there was a lady who appeared to be from India standing just behind the glass door of her storefront. She was the only one in the store, so I assumed she was one of the owners or was the manager, or at least the person on duty.
I stopped to chat with her, and asked if she spoke Telugu, but I guessed wrongly. She was from India, but spoke Punjabi. And I was all out of Punjabi copies of the Gospel Fundamentals. But I did have a Punjabi copy of the Joseph Smith Testimony pamphlet. She agreed to receive some church material in Punjabi, and I had made sure she understood it was Christian material. I retrieved Punjabi and English copies of the Joseph Smith Testimony pamphlet from my car, and presented them to her. She politely declined the English copy, but accepted the Punjabi copy.
I forgot to include a pass-along card or info-flyer. I hope I wrote the mission office number on the back of the pamphlet.
I recently called the Distribution Center to re-order more, but they are out of Punjabi copies of Gospel Fundamentals.
