The Second Last Day
One visitor today told me "You are the only Chinese who speaks Malay well". Perhaps in my context yes but those like me who speak good Malay don't serve among the Dusuns. So I am the odd man out but no one notices that until a fellow Chinese or non-indigenous person mentions it. For the Dusuns they have long accepted me which in a way is heartening. To be effective cross-culturally and not feeling the odd man out is a practice well tried or life lived out in love for the community one serves. For Jesus he had to become man (incarnation), for me I had to be a Dusun to a Dusun, a Malay speaker to Malay speakers, and an SIB pastor to SIB pastors.
