The couple apparently sent e-mails to friends and church contacts in Britain that not only discussed their ministry but also described the state of affairs in Gambia and called Jammeh "a madman," according to a report by The Times newspaper of London.

John Y., is fortunate to live in this country, where there is no strong Islamic influence. He goes around calling people mad and suffers none the less for it. This shows you what happen when there hasn't been a strong Protestant ethic in a country to have such words in a constitution.
"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

I thank SermonAudio for keeping us informed on this case.
