My mom is a children's ministries pastor in the States, which is something I know but not something I expected the average Ugandan citizen to know. Hence my surprise when a taxi conductor in Bweyale began the following, unprompted theological discussion with her:
Taxi Conductor: Do you fear God?
My Mom: Umm...yes, I fear God.
TC: (look of shock)

MM: (wondering how deeply she should go in her explanation of her faith)
Well, I'm not afraid
of him. It's more—
TC: (shoves two goats under her seat)
MM: Oh. Goats.
