17. Africa trip cancelled. [Joseph Boze & Sidney Jackson]
FEAST OF THE TRUMPETS. JEFF. IN 64-0719M
2-2 Now today, I was--want to announce that the meeting that we were planning--I was planning on going to this next coming week in--in Africa, over with Brother Joseph Boze in Kenya and Tanganyika. We are unable to have the meeting, with a telegram back from Brother Boze. "Last week three of our own missionaries was killed and--murdered." And they're having an uprise there now, and the communists are slipping guns in to the natives; claiming they got fish boats setting around (Red China and Russia), and getting guns to the natives; and they don't know no better than to use them just on anything that they see to use it on. So their--the--the--the government thought that it wouldn't be wise to have the meeting at this time. And as I understand, also that Brother Boze cannot even have his school open in this area where I was going at this time. But it's not canceled; it's just postponed until they can get it quietened again.
So I wrote them a letter recently and said, "Then let the blood of those lost souls be on you and not on me." For I believe that God was--been wanting to use my ministry over there for those people for some time. And by their denominational difference they won't let me come back. But all right, the Lord will take care of that.
