Several of us are eating lunch at CABTAL when David, a CABTAL employee, joins us. Marie congratulates him, then announces, “He has taken a third wife!” The conversation stops. Polygamy is legal and common, but not among Christians and certainly not at CABTAL. David smiles shyly and says, “Yes, we have a new person at our house.” Someone remembers that his wife was pregnant and says, “Oh, yes, you have a baby girl!” We breathe a collective sigh of relief and join in the congratulations.
