While we were waiting, some random guy came up to the van and started commenting about how one of the people in the van looked like they had been saved, and had Jesus in them, and he started going on about the Holy Spirit. It was fascinating and kind of strange. My friend says that almost everyone here goes to church on Sunday, so that sort of makes sense. I'm very interested to see what mass ...
