Delegate: I need £600…
Presenter: OK… What’s the money for?
Delegate: It’s for my to use for my church department. I want to go to a conference in Geneva this year and need this amount..
Presenter: Have you asked for a grant from your church or from the SEC Department that helps local church activities?
Delegate: No, not at all. I know all that but I’ve not done it, it’s such work!
Presenter: Do you want me to help you find ways of raising the money?
Delegate: No, I was in your session and just thought that since you know about money you must have some going spare – so you should give me – so I’m asking can you give me the £600…
