I guess Tuesday’s video is long since done and dusted, so this won’t be much use to it, but I heard these true stories about a couple of missionaries in deepest Africa back in the 1970s.
One was walking home across open countryside after sunset. He was stalked by some lions and as they were about to pounce, he heard them, panicked and ran towards some trees. The lions gave chase but the missionary jumped for a branch and was able to pull himself up. He stayed there all night, and at sunrise he was amazed to see he was sitting on a branch over 12 feet from the ground. A second missionary had a similar experience but this time it was daylight. He was approached by two lions coming from opposite directions. As he had nowhere to run, he took out his bible, knelt down and prayed to Jehovah. The two lions continued their approach but stopped about six feet away from him and sat down. The missionary, stopped praying, opened his bible and started reading about Daniel in the lion’s den. At that moment the lions pounced and ate him, demonstrating the truth of the old adage, you should never read between the lions.
