"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)



Today I am reading theology dissertations written by Congolese Baptists from North Kivu. (Admit it, you're jealous.) Anyway, this morning my good friends at Interlibrary Services got a copy of the dissertation of one of my all-time most entertaining interview subjects, whom I'll refer here to as Pastor He's Not Only a Pastor; He's Also a Member of Parliament. Pastor HNOPHAMP ends his acknowledgements section thusly:

"...I congratulate all the missionaries who heralded the Gospel to Zaire. May their weaknesses and accomplishments be a reminder of both the human limitation and God's prevailing power."

That seems to signal a good time for a lunch break.
