Isn't technology wonderful? I remember so many campaigns in years past when Jimmie would board a plane for Africa and just . . . disappear. Communication was somewhere between "difficult" and "impossible" so I would have no idea how he was faring until he walked through the airport gate again. I am so glad the world has changed in that respect.
Jimmie has called a couple of times since arriving in Nkoranza just to say everything is okay. The calls were super brief (technology is still expensive, unfortunately) but today I managed to keep him on the line long enough to get some information. He and Yaw have been conducting what Jimmie called a traveling mini-lectureship. The general format each place they go is for Jimmie and Yaw both to preach and then they hold a question and answer session. (Jimmie has talked about these Q & A sessions before. They often last longer than the preaching.) They have been averaging 3 of these a day - 25 so far and still more scheduled - so they are on the go from morning til night. The emphasis is to edify the brethren, but they have also had 6 baptisms.
Makes me tired just thinking about it, but I must say that Jimmie sounded happy on the phone.
