So this one was last Monday. And it was really unfortunate, I felt bad that it happened because it really freaked me out. We contacted a man sitting alone and started talking with him. He was from Australia and had some interesting mannerisms about him, which I don't discriminate, but it was obvious. I just made the mistake of giving him my number...
He left and we moved on to the next person. However, it wasn't even a couple minutes into that next contact that I had that same man come running up into my grill and sticking his head next to my chest to see what my name was. The first thing he says is "I'm so lost right now." Then proceeds to say "I'm homosexual. Is that allowed in your church? Are you homosexual too?" I was put on the spot and was still trying to be polite about it and warmly replied, "Christianity for the most part does not promote homosexuality and no I am heterosexual myself sorry." And he shouts out "I just think you're SOOO handsome!! Just wanted to say that!" running off giggling to catch back up with his partner.
I should've just laughed it off. But I was too creeped out honestly. It was almost like I had a similar experience to a poor little girl who has that creepy man creeping on to her..(which honestly is a good experience for me to have, I'll be much more protective with my daughters against those creeps in the future.) And then to top it off, he started harassing us hard core between texts and phone calls that I finally called the mission office to have his number blocked that night.
I am now always on the lookout for Milton when I walk those streets. It's unfortunate what damage behavior like that can cause to someone.
Homosexual and even heterosexual couples can do whatever they want to do, I'm not going to try to say what they do is wrong or try to restrict their agency. But I won't sympathize to crap like that.
Other than that, it was a decent week of sun! Which i was obviously stoked for. Here comes the sun. And I say, it's all right.
Love you all!
