An African missionary named William Chalmers was approached one day by two chiefs. They said, ‘We want Christian teachers, will you send them?

The missionary sadly said that he had no one to send.

Two years passed and the chiefs returned. The missionary himself could arrange to go now and promised to come. He arrived some time later.

As he entered the village on a Sunday morning he found the whole village on their knees in perfect silence.

He asked one of the chiefs what they were doing. PRAYING

But you are not saying anything?

We do not know what to say, for two years we have met here every Sunday for four hours praying and waiting for someone to come and teach us what to say
