The trainee had been visiting the home of the missionary for the bible lessons. He usually arrived before 12, then after the lessons with the missionary, he waited for lunch. He then went off after the meal.
The missionary’s wife spoke out, “Did he come here to learn the bible or for the food?”
“Please, stop saying that. Show love and kindness,” missionary replied.
The wife agreed and tried to feel okay. However, the trainee kept coming back.
Then one day, after the trainee had left the house, the wife said, “Time to do something. Tomorrow we will eat lunch at 11 instead of 12:30!”
Unfortunately, the trainee hadn’t left but stood outside the door listening.
The couple did what they had planned. Just as they were about to eat, they heard the same voice again.
“Hide behind the cupboard!” wife told husband.
The missionary quickly did so (not knowing that his feet could be seen from under the cupboard).
“Is he home?” asked trainee.
“Sorry, he’s gone to visit the sick in the village,” said wife.
“Oh, poor missionary. He had forgotten something!” trainee added.
“What’s that?” wife insisted.
“His feet!” said the trainee and pointing to the base of the cupboard.
