Our people here LIVE ONE DAY AT A TIME, THINKING ONLY FOR THAT DAY! (and that is how they shop for their groceries too. First, because they probably do not have money to shop for a week's groceries, Second, it's their culture to live one day at a time.) So, if Phillip announces on Sunday that on Friday night he will come at 5:30 to have a class or church service, and TO BE THERE...when he arrives THERE IS NO ONE THERE!!! Another preacher has told us that he has to call his people on the phone the morning, or day of the event and REMIND them. Here, as to not hurt you, they may tell you they are coming, and then not show up, most of the time because they FORGOT! The problem is that our people are soooo poor that they have no phone, so we have to get there to the church, and then walk around from house to house "FINDING OUR PEOPLE" for the special event. HELP! SMILE!
