I heard a story today from Zimbabwe. When you get out in the bush there the people are starving. They live subsistence farming that is heavily dependent on the rains.
The story concerns a village in the bush where their crops were trampled down by a rampaging elephant. The villagers were able to kill the elephant and the cry went up to the surrounding villagers that meat was available. The elephant was butchered and fed to the starving.
That is not the story. The story was what happened when the missionary who witnessed this told the story to local churches on deputation work. He was heckled and criticised because he approved of the villagers killing the elephant. The woman who criticised him was told that the villagers would die if they had no crops. "So," replied the woman, "Villagers die all the time in Africa."
