One of the things I learned this week had to do with finding. Finding is definitely one of my weaknesses. No one every really wants to listen to us and if they do listen they first time, then they hide the second time. But Bangal and I were determined to meet our standard. So we talked to everyone including children (its not creepy in the Philippines). The Cool thing is that not everyone was golden but there were many that were. I feel like we were blessed with willing people not because we found willing people but because we talked to everyone. One cool experience was that we were walking to one of our far areas and we walked past a funeral home. We both noticed a lady that looked super sad. Bangal and I looked at each other and turned around to go and talk to her. At the start she wanted nothing to do with us but she eventually opened up and found out that her nephew was killed in an accident, and she was the one responsible for taking care of affairs. We shortly explained the Plan of Salvation and she seemed to be cheered up a little bit. We asked where she lived and it happened to be in the sisters area. They have not been able to follow-up yet but just seeing how a 5 minute conversation brightened a persons terrible day was really good to see.
