Hope survives  
I just had the strangest encounter. Two lovely old ladies came to the door and spent about 15 minutes telling me not to worry, that the wars and floods and corruption of today would soon be gone and that we'll all live happy, peaceful, prosperus lives and we should keep on hoping for the future.

They weren't trying to sell me anything. Or convert me to any religion. They just wanted to reassure me that things would get better!

So I'm sharing that sentiment.

They ended by asking me if I'd be ok reading English. But I'm ignoring that bit. I hope my reply didn't come off as too sarcastic, they really did seem like lovely ladies.

:D :D :D *pets*

Your spoken English obviously wasn't up to standard that they were worried about your reading skills!

Jehovah's Witnesses!

I don't think so. They didn't look or talk like Jehovah's Witnesses and they didn't identify themselves as such.

What they said to you is exactly what the ones say who have been here in the past, almost verbatim, and I've never had one identify themselves as a Jehovah's Witness at all.

I agree with bohemu Random and sweet. Whether they were JW or not is beside the point, it's a nice thing to hear.
