"Yesterday, I went to church for the first time. It’s actually more like a Bible study. The missionaries here don’t want to create a church service for them, but are showing them an outline, so there’s prayer and a lesson. The goal is for them to fill the service with their own ideas from their culture and what they know. So it will be a culturally-relevant church, as opposed to the Western template that most churches use (like ours). I think yesterday, I actually felt like part of something outside of the missionary circle. I was able to fellowship, ever so awkwardly, but alright, and meet other people. They were very patient with me and were asking Larry and I the English words to some things, very sweet."
