As missionaries Chewie and I get to do some really fun things, one of those things is getting to visit lots of churches. But before we can go to a church, I have to first set up a day to come visit with the church's pastor. One of the ways I set up Sundays to visit is by making phone calls. I spend several days a weeks making lots and lots of phone calls.
Chewie, being the good friend that he is, wanted to help with the phone calls. So, I let him call Pastor Tim Adrian from Westside Baptist Church in Hutchinson, KS.
When Pastor Adrian answered the phone Chewie said, Wyaaaaaa. Ruh ruh. ("Hello. How are you?")
Pastor Adrian just responded with "hello??"
Chewie kept going on Ruh gwyaaaag. ("I am a friend.")
Then we realized that Pastor Adrian does not speak Shyriiwook, also known as Wookieespeak. So I had to take over the phone call. It was really fun to talk with Pastor Adrian, we had not gotten the chance to talk since kids camp. After talking about all the fun we had at kids camp, Pastor Adrian told me that he would like me to come to Westside to talk about London during their missions conference this October! Chewie and I were super excited about this and now we can't wait to meet all the people at Westside.
