**Okay, before I really start this post, I just want to tell everyone that this post is not meant to offend anyone in any way. I'm just simply letting you know what happens in our lives and how we handle it. If you want...consider this my disclaimer! There, I said it, so don't be gettin all mad at me!!**

On Saturday morning I knew Angel was outside messing with the speakers on the Land Rover but I didn't know that he WAS NOT ALONE!! I could hear faint talking outside.

I got up from the computer and walked over to the window and this is what I saw....

At first, I was wondering who the heck is outside. Then I was wondering why so many women were in my yard. What is my STUD up to out there?

(Que eerie music here......duh duh duuuuuuuuuuh)


That's what I told the kids, (after it dawned on me what was REALLY going on)


Now...if you know me at all, then you probably know that I immediately snickered and ran to get my camera.
I ran to another window to get a better look and that's when the kids started getting nosey and asking questions like, "What are you doing?" and "Why are you lurking behind the curtains and taking pictures?" and "What's so funny?"

I couldn't resist. It never fails, Angel is always the one getting caught out there....alone....defenseless (usually drinking beer).

Look, don't get me wrong, we may not be avid church goers (or even church goers for that matter) but it doesn't mean we don't believe in God or Jesus or whoever you choose to talk to us about at YOUR convenience.

I love watching Angel squirm.

Then, I noticed that they had him surrounded. They know he's a big man so they needed to rely on some back-up in order for their persuasion charms to work. I have no idea how long they were out there before I noticed.

Finally, they started leaving and I opened the door and called out to Angel, "Psssst...pssst...are they gone?" He comes inside and tells me how the lady just kept talking to him and he was telling her that he really didn't want to take the pamphlets because they would just end up in the trash and that he thinks that they sent the young girl forward to "tempt" him into being more interested into listening to how much of a sinner he will be if he doesn't....blah..blah..blah...

He said he kept looking around while he was telling them no (I betcha he was praying then!)
He also said that the ladies couldn't stop looking at his shirt...

Finally, they gave in (probably thinking they were wasting their breath on the devil's spawn) and carried on, arming themselves for the next unsuspecting door opener or yard lounger.
Keep an eye out, people!

They are gang evangelizing now? Well, that's one way to do it, although I don't think it's what baby Jesus had in mind.

Hilarious! Men *should* squirm at least once a week and we should be allowed to take pictures ;o)

i get those people. I tell them how I dont believe in the bible and go into my long story about how i think aliens made the world, and the 'Gods' that came from 'the heavens' were really aliens, and I cant remember last week, so how could anyone possibly remember all those biblical facts, for a book that was written hundreds of years later?!?!?!??

Yeah I get that 'look', as they walk off and inform me they will pray for me.

I don't think it's what Baby Jesus had in mind either. Of course, here, they can corner you in 2 different languages.

Maternal Mirth:
I fully plan on setting him up to squirm more often and I will have my camera ready.

People walk around neighborhood preaching the "Word of God" to everyone whether you want them to or not.

They probably hide a bible somewhere on your proberty too, just to be on the safe side. I wouldn't be surprised if I found Bibles all over our yard one day after they have conversations with Angel.
