Philippa believed that the future of Africa and its salvation lay in Christianity. Over the past few years, she had become an intensely religious person, a turn that could not have been predicted because Philippa grew up to share her mother's fascination with the supernatural and even her belief in reincarnation. Philippa worked hard at being a Catholic and she would sit in front of her piano, reading aloud passages from the Bible. While travelling in Africa to perform, report to the news media, gather knowledge about the continent's music, the most significant collateral activity for Philippa was getting acquainted with the work of Christian missions.
