Six hours after we had crawled into bed, the alarm rang – 5 o’clock. Time to get up; the convoy to Ogbomosho was to set off at 6. We were just about properly awake when the telephone rang. It was Ilka. The departure had been postponed until 10 am. We sank thankfully back into our beds and slept for another three hours. I did not sleep very well; a strange bed, the lack of air and the noise of the air conditioning kept waking me up.
Then I was wide awake. We did not bother with the 40-dollar breakfast and I ate a muesli bar instead. After my private devotion, we packed, checked out and waited to leave. The other CfaN guests gathered in the lobby. Reinhard Bonnke and Daniel Kolenda gave us a friendly welcome. It is amazing to see how down-to-earth they are; they seem so ordinary and caring.
