San Pedro Outreach Service

After a morning prayer walk, we had time to practice our dramas and catch up on our devotions, before heading out in the afternoon to go door-to-door inviting people to the evening meeting.

I teamed up with Claudio, a young man from a sister church, who spoke less English than I spoke Spanish. We managed to communicate enough with shrugs and gestures to get our designated streets finished. Sadly, only 10 people wanted to speak to us and many people did not answer or were not home.

The occupants often have high fences with locked gates and will speak from the front door or via an intercom. The idea was to have the people answer a short questionaire before asking them to come, however most said they had no time to complete a 'religious' questionaire, so we never even got past the front gate.

In the evening we ran a service, but attendence was not surprisingly small. I played in two dramas, which was fun, as at least that way I don't have to share my testimony or anything:)
