‘Hi John’, said the Pastor as he made a follow up Skype call to his young missionary, ‘how are you?’
Not too bad. I’ve apologised to the language supervisor and begun to follow his advice. I have found someone my own age at the local coffee shop and he’s also an Arsenal supporter. So I have increased my football vocabulary.
That is good John. Now I said I would get back to you about the church prayer support. I have spoken with the chair of the Mission Committee and some of the other leaders. They backed my support of your language supervisor and agreed that you should concentrate on getting into the local scene and stop feeling that you have to keep in touch with us every day. An email every month or so should give us some prayer fuel. We don’t want to always have to make bricks without straw in our prayer times!
