      Many communities mixed Muslim or Christian practices with traditional ones. And only in the sense that Njang's parable cannot be found in official Baha'i texts. Njang's answer and his rhetorical abilities seem to have carried the day, winning the approval of those who were present. The religion was actively offered; it was also actively received. He says that he began attending the services of the Church of Christ during the first few weeks after his arrival there.

      Njang's parable focuses on the command of God, eschews reference to any lesser being, and specifically makes no reference to witches as a cause of death. In so doing you will manifest that not in words only, but in deed and in truth, you think of all men as your brothers.

It does not represent the point of view of the missionaries themselves, who would regard the two situations as fundamentally different.

      They lived in China for 10 years, Religion in Calabar book moved back to the UK due to ill health, before serving in India at a church in Ootacamund. About a week later, Oban-Itchi went off for a weekend trip to another plantation to visit a Cameroonian friend, Michael Nkamato. She was rejected by the China Inland Mission after failing to pass the necessary exams, but agreed to work for a year-old missionary, Jeannie Lawson, who was looking for a young woman to carry on her work in the country. Slessor suffered from serious bouts of malaria and other tropical diseases, and was forced on more than one occasion to return to Scotland to recover. The resonance of his speech is largely drawn from the familiarity of the parable which is now turned to suit African theological concerns. One tradition says that Abasi's wife Atai persuaded him to let two of their children, a daughter and son, settle on the earth.
