During the African Reformation Overland Mission, our team had to separate in order for me to minister in Tanzania. I had to leave my wife and other team member in Zambia and head for the border by myself. Throughout the first day of travel, there was no end of harassment from the police. They were particular about checking my paperwork and I was convinced that they were looking for an excuse to fine me and try make me pay a bribe. One policeman told me that I had to pay an outrageous fine for something I am not sure is even a crime. I told him that at the most, he should just warn me and let me go. He told me that a warning would cost 50 kwachas—in other words, he wanted a bribe. I told him that I would rather pay the full amount than pay that “warning fee”. He told me that he would make me pay the full fine, to which I responded that I was very disappointed in him for making me pay for something so silly. He then let me go without paying anything.

The first night, I stayed at a lodge by myself. It was the under 20 soccer final and Zambia was playing. Many people came to the lodge to watch the game. Some stayed late into the night to celebrate Zambia’s victory. Of course, no African celebration is complete without loud music. Eventually, in order to get some sleep, I had to get the lodge staff to force the people to turn their music off or down!
