1. As of today, the medicines to be used at the clinic have still not been shipped from Holland. Even after they arrive, they will have to go through customs and transported from the capital to Mongu.
2. Final approval for the Doctor coming from the states. We are hoping to hear that this has been taken care of.
3. While we run the clinic, we will also be having a big evangelistic push. Every patient will be prayed with and the Jesus film will be playing in their language each day. As of now, we have not been able to contact the man in Zimbabwe with the church’s Jesus film equipment.
While all of these things have been in the works for quite a long time, things continue to be blocked. But I read an amazing passage this morning from II Kings.
“When the servant of the man of God got up early the next morning and went outside, there were troops, horses, and chariots everywhere. ‘Oh, sir, what will we do now?’ the young man cried to Elisha.
"Don't be afraid," Elisha told him, "For there are more on our side than on theirs!" Then Elisha prayed, "O Lord, open his eyes and let him see!"
The Lord opened the young man's eyes, and when he looked up, he saw that the hillside around Elisha was filled with horses and chariots of fire." II Kings 6
What a powerful reminder that our fight is not against flesh and blood, but "against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 6:12
Our God is on our side!
