‘Hey, you should have used more black shoe polish before you came out,’ George was enjoying himself at my discomfort. Zero fish!
Except for the pastor, he took me aside, ‘Bruce, you are wrong to take your family and work amongst these people.’ ‘But this is where I have been called,’I tried to explain. ‘But you aren’t trained, and there is no mission society or denomination behind you.’ How are you going to survive? Why don’t you get them to come here to this church?’ He thought I was rushing into some dream without counting the cost.
