Davis Missionary Journey: Linguistic Languor

I was ready to use my new KiKaonde phrase that I had memorized, a greeting in the Lord. A visiting Kaonde evangelist was just the right audience. After greeting him, he looked a bit angry. Then he asked me, "Why did you greet me in the name of your dog?" Obviously something had gone terribly amiss.

"But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth."
Colossians 3:8 KJV

Skating too close to blasphemy on that one,
Brian, Sondra, Noah, & Bryson


Pictured: Kambo = Lord; Kabwa = dog. That's important to know.
