I “chaperoned” Sue and Lisa through the Masai Market today so they could shop for items to be sold at Zumbro’s African fellowship dinner in March. You’ll see here a photo of their haul. It was fun to watch a non-bargainer (Sue) and a bargainer (Lisa) interact with each other and the sales people.
Shop Owner to Bob (pointing to Lisa): Your daughter should come into my shop!
Lisa to Sue while bargaining: “You just stay out of this.” (Lisa offered $35 for an item that Sue wanted. And Sue started raising Lisa’s price before the shop owner had the chance to.)
Also Bob (or Babu) means grandfather in Swahili. After I introduce myself to Tanzanians I am instantly called “Papa.” :)
Be sure to save the date for Zumbro’s African fellowship dinner on Sunday, March 2. We’ll share a meal with the Sudanese members of our congregation and have these African items (and more!) available for you to purchase at a silent auction. This is an exiting way that you can be a part of this shared ministry that we have with our African brothers and sisters.
