Phil and Linda Byler, missionaries in Sudan

Today I transported these three yellow-clad “Women of Grace” to Loudo village for Sunday services with evangelist Willie.
A bit after this photo, as I was preaching, a big gecko (bright orange-headed lizard) about 12 inches long dropped from the tree with a splat between me and the front row of children. I had just made the statement, “Jesus knows all about our suffering.” The gecko plopping in the dust startled us all, especially the one child when the gieko scurried up his leg and torso and jumped off his shoulder.
I had serious trouble attempting to regain attention to finish the sermon. It didn’t help that my translator was blind Willie whose English is pretty scanty. And it was 2 PM and everybody was tired and hungry.
Oh well, Jesus said, “I will build my church.” It’s not all up to my clever attention-grabbing sermons anyhow.
