Ben had the opportunity to meet with several chiefs at the local villages. Typically, the volunteer team would bring him gifts (flashlights and fans). The chief also gave gifts in return, and granted the volunteer team permission to provide dental care and share the gospel story.
On one occassion, the chief gave Ben and the team a live dove in a cage. Somewhat unlike the gifts we give to each other in the US :)
They also gave soccer balls and school supplies to the school head master (like a principal). This was a gift of appreciation for allowing the volunteer team to share the gospel story with the children in school.
