Shooting Mr. Edwards

As young as I was in 1968, I was profoundly affected by the great Moratorium on Missions (a massive pull-out of missionaries worldwide) and the talk and the spirit which surrounded it. In my diary of the summer of 1968, then being eight years old, I recorded outbound from Sydney: "As we were saying goodbye we went under the sprinkler. And arrived all wet at the ship. When we went into our cabin Mr. Cox was in one of the beds. And said when you get to London you must shoot Mr. Edwards with this gun." Mr. Cox and Mr. Edwards were "major players" at the time.
