Phil and Linda Byler, missionaries in Sudan

It was a routine customs police stop just outside of town. Usually they wave us through with friendly greetings. Today the officer demanded each of our passports and scrutinized them carefully. Finding them all in order, he demanded to see our cameras, then our photos on the LCD screen. “Delete them all,” he ordered. “But why?” I asked, “we have no military photos.” “Don’t ask questions,” he snapped, “just do as I say!”

We learned that in an distant town a woman had been bewitched the previous day and turned into a large snake. People were mobbing the police station to view the snake/woman. It wasn’t clear to us white folks how this story related to our delete-photo-demands. Nonetheless this blog entry contains all the photos left on our camera.

The next day the government declared the snake story a hoax.
