Well, John's been having it rough. That guy died and his wife moved away so he can't consider her to be a new recruite. She's only a woman, anyway. But his past converts are mostly done with him, he's got to travel farther to find anyone who'll even pretend to listen to him, and I think he's getting a case of the sads.
I bet he decided to call Daddy and get more money, because spending money always makes John smile. But Daddy got testy with him and said that he's not bringing in much himself these days because so many of his congregation are donating extra money to help with the hurricanes. John probably stupidly asked "What hurricanes? We don't get those here.", causing Daddy to get even more testy.
Since John has been denied his Retail Therapy, and banging Esther isn't as much fun when she's already pregnant, he's got to go on Face Book and make a suitably vague post letting everyone know that he's having trouble, he's been betrayed by his own flesh (and blood?), Satan's got him by the short and curly's again, and he's in need of internet hugs, prayers, and some money wouldn't go amiss, either. He's probably waiting in his bed for his leg humpers to lift his spirits.
