Spanish at restaurant. Wed, Feb 18, 2009.

02/18/2009. 1113. I took the missionaries to their appointment with the African investigator. It went pretty well. On the way back to their apartment, I offered to take them to lunch at a nearby Mexican restaurant, during their scheduled lunch break. I said the deal was that I'd pay, but they had to offer our waitress church material. They accepted, and agreed to meet me at the restaurant later.

We met up there, were seated, and ordered. I showed them what I had brought: Spanish and English Bibles, Spanish and English copies of the Book of Mormon, a Spanish and an English Liahona magazine, and 2 multi-lingual DVD's.

After we were served, I put the two Bibles and two copies of the Book of Mormon on the outside of the booth's table. On one of her trips back to check on us, the senior companion offered her a Bible, and she perused the material. She accepted the Spanish Bible, but didn't want the other material. Inside the Bible was a flyer listing the local chapels, including where and when the Spanish branch meets, and listing the Spanish-speaking missionaries' phone number.

After we paid at the cashier counter, the junior companion offered the cashier a multi-lingual "Introduction to the Church" DVD, which the cashier accepted.

What a great way to feed others! The missionaries eat and the waiter will feast. Good job!
