What better snack is there than popcorn? It's one of my favorites and if I'm ever stuck on a deserted island somewhere blissfully away from sociopaths, it's on my list of few things I get to keep with me.

The English service was set to start at 9:30 so we arrived about ten minutes early and went inside. Before entering the sanctuary we visited the bathroom. I've since been told that this building used to house a Christian school and I suppose that those were the folks who painted the ladies bathroom to look like this:
Is that not lovely? I melted when I saw it. What an excellent reminder for young women (and old ones...)
After finding a seat we were surprised that there weren't many people there. Right before the service began the white pastor came up to us and welcomed us, mentioning warning that they ask visitors to stand and introduce themselves. When the time came I stood and gave our names and where we were from. Soon we were greeted by almost every person in the room, which had filled up over time. People kept arriv…
