When God Speaks...

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time […]

Milu Jost sat in the rear of the vehicle between his daughter on one side and Azo on the other. Hito and the ethnographer tended to remain silent, listening to the older […]
