For the most part I feel pretty safe here in Greenland. But today the Lord was watching out for me. I wanted to share with you what happened this morning. I had gone to the little store next door to our house to pick up a few things. As I was checking out a drunk guy came up and (in very slurred speech) said "Hi". He looked familiar so I said "Hi" as I went to go get something else I needed. I get back to the counter and he is still standing there waiting on me. As I get ready to pay he says "I pay, you get your things and go." I told him that I would pay for my own things and handed the cashier the money.
He then asked where I was from and I told him America. He was so drunk he then asked what country in America! He said that he was a prawn fisherman. He had just returned from being out on a fishing boat at 8 o'clock this morning. He was so drunk that he couldn't even stand upright! (This happened about 10 AM our time) I was scared because it was just me, him, a little old lady, and the cashier in the store.
He proceeded to ask if I wanted to go party with him. I told him "No, I'm going home to my family!" I got out of there as fast as I could! As I stepped out of the store I saw a taxi sitting there with a load of men staring at me (his friends I guess). I was so thankful that the Lord kept me safe today!!
