A pastor's committment!One of the pastors I had previously met at a training seminar, arrived recently in the village where we were training. He had travelled 3 days by bicycle, sleeping on the side of the road, to be at a leader’s meeting. On his journey he hit a cat (well the cat ran into the front wheel on his push bike) wrecking his front forks (I didn’t ask how the cat was) and throwing him into the dirt. Fortunately the pastor was unhurt and smiling as he arrived on foot a day late because he had walked the final part of the trip so not to miss the meeting.
The last I heard, the other pastors at the meeting were raising money to purchase him a new bike as the broken one was old and the Pastor travels a lot visiting churches in his area. It certainly takes a huge commitment to be a pastor in the African bush.
