Amharic at store. Fri, Dec 21, 2012.
12/21/2012. 1318. I saw an East African-looking man at a store, but I neglected to strike up a conversation with him. Through no effort on my part I ended up next in line behind him at the check-out, but there still didn't appear to be a clear opportunity to say something. Afterwards, as I went to my car, I saw him get into his taxi, so then I knew he was from Africa, and decided to approach. He was from Eritrea, and spoke both Tigrinya and Amharic. The church doesn't have anything in Tigrinya, so I offered him the Amharic Book of Mormon, and he accepted. I retrieved a copy from my car and presented it to him. I pointed out the list of chapels that I put in it, and pointed out the phone number for the mission office that he could call and get an English copy if he wanted.
