My husband and I visited a church last night, where we attended when we were first married. As is customary for a Wednesday, I was dressed in my blue "missionary" tunic and black dress pants. People kept snapping pictures...not because I looked so gothic, but because I was so "normal". I honestly did not realize I looked that diffrent...but as I learned of how they saw me after 2 years, I realized I had modified myself more than I thought. I am still a christian goth, but someone who did not know that would never know anymore, accept when I want them to. I guess that is a good thing when one works with a people group that thinks Goth and most thinks assoicated with it are tabboo based on their traditional beliefs.
Outside of that everything went wonderfully! They were so loving and intrested in our ministry to the Navajo. They asked so many questions, and we were there talking with them for over 2 hours. I cant wait to keep in contact with them as we continue on as missionaries.
