Yesterday was a special joy for us here in support services. Most often, the teaching and church planting efforts of our missionaries occurs at a distance from us, somewhere out in the bush, and we only hear tell of the results rather than see them.
But yesterday was a celebration of the conclusion of the Foundations in Christ chronological Bible teaching for elementary kids in their school! We do not yet know the impact or the fruit of the teaching but what a joy to hear that over 100 children have now heard the complete story of Jesus and His salvation! To hear that they had sat attentively and listened well, participating well throughout the teaching, hearing them answer collectively and excitedly the questions asked of them about who Jesus is and what He has done for them, and hearing the report that parents had come to the headmistress saying how their children’s behavior has been changing because of what they were learning! Bel bilong mi i stap hamamas tru! (My belly (heart) is very happy!)
As we have done a few times before, we are again teaching the Foundations study to our national workers here on center as well. Please pray for the fruit of all of these teachings, both here, and in the children, and in the bush. God’s word is powerful and God’s Spirit stirs the heart. Please pray for much fruit from the hearing and believing of God’s word!
