Describe your shopping for us?

Every Tuesday we make a day of it. We first go to the local market to buy fresh produce, then to town to get meat, bread, cheese, milk, cleaning supplies, and hardware items. Angela and I also take time to go to lunch together that day.

How are the customs and traditions different than those in the U.S.?

People are very closed – they will act one way but be thinking totally different on the inside. People also like to be proper – greet every one when entering a house and greet everyone again on the way out – even if you are there only 30 seconds. Everything needs to go in a bag to be carried. Don't eat out in public! - except at restaurants of course. And don't chew gum like a cow! They have a king-like attitude – proud and proper. 

What do you like most about being a missionary?

Being in a place where so many have never heard that you can have a guarantee to go to heaven and being able to show them.

What do you least enjoy about being a missionary?

Missing all the activities at First Baptist Church of Hammond, IN and having no help with the ministry here.

What is your favorite food?

Gregg - Steak with garlic butter on top
Angela - Cheezy Lasagna
