   An old missionary couple had been working in Africa for years and were
   returning to New York to retire. They had no pension; their health was
   broken; they were defeated, discouraged, and afraid. They discovered
   they were booked on the same ship as President Teddy Roosevelt, who
   was returning from one of his big-game hunting expeditions.

   No one paid any attention to them. They watched the fanfare that
   accompanied the President's entourage, with passengers trying to catch
   a glimpse of the great man. As the ship moved across the ocean, the
   old missionary said to his wife, "Something is wrong."

   "Why should we have given our lives in faithful service for God in
   Africa all these many years and have no one care a thing about us?
   Here this man comes back from a  hunting trip and everybody makes much
   over him, but nobody gives two hoots about us."

   "Dear, you shouldn't feel that way", his wife said.

   He replied "I can't help it; it doesn't seem right."

   When the ship docked in New York, a band was waiting to greet the
   President. The mayor and other dignitaries were there. The papers were
   full of the President's arrival. No one noticed this missionary
   couple. They slipped off the ship and found a cheap flat on the East
   Side, hoping the next day to see what they could do to make a living
   in the city.

   That night the man's spirit broke. He said to his wife, "I can't take
   this; God is not treating us fairly". His wife replied, "Why don't you
   go in the bedroom and tell that to the Lord?"
   A short time later he came out from the bedroom, but now his face was
   completely different. His wife asked, "Dear, what happened?"

   "The Lord settled it with me", he said. "I told Him how bitter I was
   that the President should receive this tremendous homecoming, when no
   one met us as we returned home. And when I finished, it seemed as
   though the Lord put His hand on my shoulder and simply said;

   "But you're not home yet."
