While I was running some errands with Sadie this afternoon, I saw the strangest thing. I was stopped at a red light. I looked over and saw two young men in dark pants, white shirts, and black little name tags on their chest. Yes, they were missionaries. This isn't the odd part of my story. The odd thing was, they were holding signs. One said, "Save the lost sheep. Call us with your referrals." The other one said, "Sharing is caring. Send us your referrals." Both posters had their phone number plastered all over them.
I don't know what to think. Here were two Mormon missionaries flashing these posters at cars driving by. It is pretty hot outside so I know they were sweating. Is this a good use of time? Do you think people actually call them with referrals? I'm not saying what they were doing was wrong. I just have never seen that before. I honestly, am not sure how to feel about this. Deep down in my heart, I'm a little embarrassed but at the same time, who am I to judge? When was the last time I tried to share the gospel with anyone? Maybe I am too comfortable and seeing these missionaries made me feel guilty for not doing my part.
Either way, it still seems a little strange.
