A Baptist Speaks About the Dark Side

death My goal from the beginning was to cartoon each of the 122 chapters of my book. While my writing and cartoon style is light humor, I think you can feel my heartbreak of seeing death. I worked on this cartoon for over three weeks to get Death drawn so he seems personable, and the dialogue to convey my sadness. Not many people outside of Kigoma knew of this job. Take time to pray for missionaries as they share the Gospel in difficult situations.

I would like you to comment on this cartoon. Thank you for sharing.

A Baptists Thinks Angels Speak Swahili

coke truckWhen you lived three days out from Nairobi or Dar es Salam, you better know two things about a car: #1 change a tire and #2 put gas/diesel in the back port. I skipped the filling station in Mwanza (see map) and thought I had enough diesel to get to Shinyanga.

Standing by the car looking around, off in the distance we see dust, the sign of a vehicle. Then as it got closer, I saw it was red, then saw it was a Coca Cola truck. Coca Cola trucks use diesel. The two Coca Cola men spoke Swahili which was a blessing since that was one of the two languages that I spoke at the time. Eight liters got us to Shinyanga. When you lived three days out, you needed all the help you could get.
