You are never alone
Norman Brierley and me teaching basic radio awareness and doing some planning work with missionary Vince Ward and local person, John Kwash. The kids in the background were a permanent feature, and would slowly get closer and closer until right up against the mosquito screen. There they would stand and stare, not really understanding a word, but fascinated by these strange people living in their village. Dinka people are friendly, and have to greet anyone they pass. So we spent a lot of time telling people our names, but most had not concept of the UK or America. Strangely, a lot of the older kids would ask us: 'how do you do?' and we doubt they got that from Canadian missionaries! This training and meetings took place inside our hut.
