Missionary Efforts (but not of the Mormon variety)

It was a beautiful day this morning when I decided to walk up to campus (well, less "decided" and more "I have a biology class at 8 that I need to go to"). I stepped outside, put my ear buds in, turned on my iPod, and went my merry way. As I walked across the street and was about to start my arduous trek up the Stairs from Hell, there were two younger guys (probably early twenties) standing right before the stairs and handing out pamphlets. I thought nothing of it and took the pamphlet because people do that all the know, join this club or support this team or go green....whatever. Well, I look at the pamphlet and the cover says, "Why You Can Trust the Bible."

What the?

Turns out, a couple of Jehovah's Witness people (I'm not sure how to classify them....members of the Jehovah's Witness? Jehovah's Witnesses? Meh.) were just standing right there, handing out these bible pamphlets to all the BYU students on their way to school. Haha. Somehow, I found it kind of hilarious. Not in a mean-spirited way, but just...hilarious. The guy that was walking up a little ahead of me on the stairs looked at the pamphlet, and kind of looked around at me as though he had no idea what to do. Pretty much made my day.

I have to say, that takes a lot of guts for them to do that!

That's what I figured. That's quite the mountain to take on, so I say go them.

I wonder if the missionaries stake out the Notredame campus?

You should have started to pretend to be an investigator. then be all, "nevermind. got to go to my mormon school."
