Amharic at gas station. Tue, Mar 25, 2008.

03/25/2008. 1009. I stopped at a gas station for some soda on my way home. The cashier looked like she was from East Africa. She was from Eritrea, and spoke Tigrinya. The church doesn't have anything in Tigrinya, but many Eritreans also speak Amharic, the language of Ethiopia. Eritrea used to be a part of Ethiopia.

She didn't speak Amharic, but she said another family member does. I asked if she would like a free church-book in Amharic for the other person, and she said okay. I retrieved an Amharic copy and an English copy of the Book of Mormon from my car, and went back in and presented them. She accepted them, and showed genuine interest.
