And I love to share about our field!
But sometimes they ask questions that are difficult to answer. They seem like simple questions, but in fact they are quite complicated and have a "long story" explanation.
Take, for example, this simple question:
"How long does it take you to get to church?"
Of course the person who asks this question is expecting me to give a simple time answer ( hours and/or minutes.)
If you are wanting a simple answer, the best I can do is to tell you it takes us anywhere from thirty minutes to an hour and a half... and there have been a couple of occasions where we never made it there at all.
For those who enjoy the "long story," just keep reading.
Here is how it works in a third-world country: We must have plan A, plan B, plan C... and so on. And it isn't necessary to go in alphabetical order either. Our family has found life more exciting when we skip to plan F and come back to plan D if plan F fails. It keeps things lively and fresh.
