Ben later reflected to us that the story he chose to share here made a significant impression on the people. He told them how he suddenly lost his 2 children many years ago, when he was working with our parents on the Scripture translation. Many unbelieving Sera blamed him for their deaths, because of his work on the translation - "You've angered the spirits by worshipping this Jesus instead of them!" He was crushed. But he refused to give up responding to God's call, and persisted in the work. Later, God blessed him with several more children. This spoke powerfully to the people - that God might be stronger or greater than the spirits that control their lives.
