A new missionary recruit went to
Venezuela for the first time. He was
struggling with the language and didn't
understand a whole lot of what was going
on. Intending to visit one of the local
churches, he got lost, but he eventually
got back on track and found the place.
Having arrived late, the church was
already packed. The only pew left was
the one on the front row. Well, it appears our African-American friends have found yet something else to be pissed about. A black congresswoman reportedly complained that the names of hurricanes are all Caucasian [...]
not to make a fool of himself, he
decided to pick someone out of the crowd
to imitate. He chose to follow the man
sitting next to him on the front pew. As
they sang, the man clapped his hands, so
the missionary recruit clapped too. When
the man stood up to pray, the missionary
recruit stood up too. When the man sat
down, he sat down.
When the man
held the cup and bread for the Lord's
Supper, he held the cup and bread.
During the preaching, the recruit didn't
understand a thing. He just sat there
and tried to look just like that man in
the front pew. Then he perceived that
the preacher was giving announcements.
People clapped, so he looked to see if
the man was clapping. He was, and so the
recruit clapped too.
preacher said some words that he didn't
understand and he saw the man next to
him stand up. So he stood up too.
Suddenly a hush fell over the entire
congregation. A few people gasped. He
looked around and saw that nobody else
was standing. So he sat down.
the service ended, the preacher stood at
the door shaking the hands of those who
were leaving. When the missionary
recruit stretched out his hand to greet
the preacher, the preacher said, in
English, "I take it you don't speak
The missionary recruit
replied, "No, I don't. It's that
"Well, yes," said the
preacher. "I announced that the Acosta
family had a newborn baby boy, and would
the proud father please stand up."
