Please pray for the gospel presentation this Friday.
Excitement is building as we prepare to teach about the final days of Jesus’ life on earth. Most of the 100+ listeners have been paying close attention to the teaching about Jesus and can’t wait to hear about what he did in order to pay for their sins. We praise the Lord for the tremendous work He has been doing among the Moi over the past 6 weeks. Words can hardly describe all the miracles God is doing in order that His Son, Jesus, may have the preeminence in the hearts and lives of the Moi.
Keeping warm while listening to Pupuiye teach this morning
Through the past week and half of teaching they have fallen in love with Jesus and see that he is God’s promised Messiah spoken of by Moses and the prophets. Not only is he perfect man, but He is God incarnate. They have been amazed at Jesus’ power over sickness, blindness, demons, nature, and even death. Yesterday we taught about Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead after he was in the tomb for four days. Death is all too familiar for them and they know that after four days the body starts to stink. When Jesus prayed to the Father and said, “Lazarus, come forth!”, he came out of the tomb fully alive. We could hear them talking among themselves and one of the guys spoke up, “How long was he in the tomb?” Rich said, “Four days.” He then said, “Wow! That is truly amazing. Thank you, God.”
The unbelievers aren’t the only ones growing in their faith. As you know we have all been praying for food. The gardens were supposed to have run out two weeks ago. This evening Karen was visiting with one of her believing friends, Iyodogotabo. During the last six weeks she has been hosting four or five ladies along with five kids, plus her own two. She told Karen her prayer, “Lord, I want to feed these extra people staying with me. I want them to hear your truth.” She then said to Karen, “God has been providing! There is not a lot, but every day there is food. Every little sweet potato I dig up I thank Him for it.” Her garden had very little to begin with and yet God keeps multiplying it. The Moi listening to the teaching are amazed that there is food and believe that it’s only because of God. He is showing Himself powerful on their behalf.
