RE: Editorial: A question to focus us on what matters most: “So, what?”
The thing that matters most is presenting Jesus Christ to the developing nations of the world—Africa and far East Asia.
The issue of racial reconciliation for Black and white people in America will never come to pass. American Black people have had their administration twice in Washington. It bothers me to read racial issues being used in our academic institutions and our Baptist churches, most recently involving a Black Baptist pastor in Arlington, Texas, who appeared in the Baptist Standard.
Five decades ago, my wife and I left Kenya for Texas, to join the teams of men and women who labored day and night preaching Jesus Christ in villages and towns of East Africa. During the early 1970s, we could not get a single brother or sister from the Black congregations in America to come to East Africa to witness of the Lord.
Now as American citizens, we spend three-fourths of the year in East Africa building disciples and planting new churches.
