Elizabeth, New Jersey.
Great joy in a missionary meeting for prayer and testimony.
Spoke afterward with Carl Johnson of Congo. He counseled Pete and me thus:
1) Never let the sun go down on the slightest miff between us.
Walk in the light with no darkness between us;
2) Always be willing to abase yourself before a native.
“We think and say that we are just being ‘firm,’ but they know that we are angry”;
3) Beware of idols.
In going to lead other men away from idols, the Enemy will put them in your own house. His hobby, he said, was hunting; he got to like it better than speaking to souls about Jesus.
Beware, my soul, of idols.
