Another missionary. This one started out in Africa, and headed to the US, where the real heathen were.

I found this amazing story and bring it to you, although I had to wade knee-deep through glurge to do it.

Well done for getting through the glurge to tell us in an h2g2 way about a person who deserves to be commemorated in the Guide.

I spotted just a couple of bits that could do with a tweak:

"This happened to Kaboo, because he was a prince, he'd become a 'pawn', and his people couldn't come up with the ransom." - this sentence might need splitting into two.

The paragraph beginning "At this precise moment, Taylor University..." could be tightened up, I think - you mention the bank being about to foreclose twice, and in "partly because they didn't have enough food to feed them with." who are 'they'?

smiley - ok

Thanks for that good feedback, Sasha. Research took longer than I thought - and reading two books and a pamphlet besides watching one-and-a-half documentaries. By the time I was writing it up, it got late and I got sloppy. Thanks for showing me where I needed to go back and rewrite. smiley - smiley I'll work on links later.

I hope it's better now. I want to do his story justice - a guy with that much joy and determination deserves to be a Hitchhiker. smiley - smiley
