DINNER AND A MOVIE:
It was a busy, but wonderful weekend, kicked off by dinner and a movie with the English Club. After some time of worship, Scott shared a story from the Bible, followed by dinner. Now to say that they enjoyed the Sloppy Joes and potato salad would be a bit of an understatement. At first they were all to shy to dish up their plates, and then. . .well. . .I kid you not, within thirty seconds, I turned around and the salad was gone along with most of the sandwiches!
The movie we showed was Facing the Giants, and according to their response to Scott on the way home, they didn't like the movie, they LOVED it! I'd say the evening was a hit. What is even more wonderful, though, are the testimonies of lives being changed. Parents have told us that they are noticing that their kids are different and more respectful. There is thought going into their spiritual commitment, along with a lot of deep questions being asked.
A single mother who attends David's house church was also at our house and gave her testimony of how the movie changed her life by giving her courage to stand up for her faith in a difficult situation that came up the next day.
WORSHIP IN THE VILLAGE:
On Sunday, we left in the morning for Elizabeth's village (we call Elizabeth our Lydia from the book of Acts) where Scott has be teaching twice a week. We sat beneath a shady tree on reed mats singing praises and listening to the story of Cornelius. After teaching for several weeks on conversion and commitment, quite a number decided yesterday that they want to be baptized. Because there is no water anywhere near, and the group is large, we will return on Wednesday in two vehicles to drive them to the river for the baptisms.
Please pray for these beautiful people!
