A memorial service for Earl Roth, who served for nearly four decades with Africa Inter-Mennonite Mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo and as an administrator in North America, was held April 24 at Silverwood Mennonite Church in Goshen, Ind.

On a Sunday in November after worship, Alice Tou, a member of one of our Mennonite churches in Bobo Dioulasso, Burkina Faso, asked to have a word with me. I could see she was worried. Large groups of Muslim neighbors kept arriving at her house, asking her to arrange a meeting with her pastor. They wouldn’t say why they wanted to see me.
