And Pastor was really warm towards us: he showed no interest in explanations; he just kept saying, “I’m delighted to see you, I’m delighted to see you.” Those were his words, as if to dismiss our apologies before Chris could finish.

It may have been then that Pastor said, “Well, why don’t you come to one of our week-night meetings? We have meetings in the week; come on Tuesday to the Bible Study” — which we did.
