Sunday evening we supported the local team. Our own Nakaale footballers fought a pitched battle against the team from Nakasen. Our side even featured the stylings of the mission’s very own Jesse VanGorkom. Despite their best efforts, the evening ended in a stunning defeat 2–1, made more inexplicable by the fact that the referee is a resident of Nakaale. Perhaps it was a divine judgement for playing on Sunday. Perhaps the team suffered from insufficient support from the fans. Whatever the case, the game goes on and we will have another chance for victory.
No, we’re not going to play monkeys or snakes right now; we’re going to read a Bible story.
