The changing world (104) Apr 81

Apr 1st My students played the joke of a forged letter to me. To Hillcrest for PTA office handover.
2nd       Hausa teaching. Deb unsettled while Katy at prayer meeting.
3rd        Picked up 1 Cor TEE books from NBTT printers.
4th        Handed over Rockhaven supervision to Bentleys. No more staffing problems to sort.
5th        Preached at HQ in both language services. Campus Crusade singles to lunch. Thieves around again last night.
6th        300 Km to Kano. Staying at noisy Dele's. Grace's pepper stew excellent. Visited the plot he is buying. Took minibus to have the Amazing Grace Books have painted. Chat with ECWA pastor on TEE.
7th         Enjoying Grace's cooking. Selecting banner books to buy. Sabon Gari traffic is scary.
8th         Back home in Dele's air-conditioned ar at 140Km/hr.
9th         Jonathan Murray here from Kaduna. Evening prayer meeting with him.
10th       Our visitor took Katy and Rachel to Naraguta for pots.

15th       Dele brought the minibus and books. Brian Boddy to dinner.
16th       John Nash, evangelist at Vom, has taken a second wife under family pressure for the son Naomi cannot give him. I was disgusted that the church merely dismissed him and did not support Naomi divorcing him on the grounds of adultery. But COCIN has inherited a wrong view of marriage regarding Christian marriage as the only kind that is exclusive and indissoluble.
