Siam: Kenneth Preached in a Church and Visited a Snake Farm


The second week after the Landons arrived in Siam, Kenneth preached in a Siamese church to a white congregation. On Thursday, the vacation day, they went to visit a snake farm, where they saw vipers, cobras, and hamadryads. The handler of the snake had become immune to snake bites.
