A visit to the very end of the earth

This past weekend we had a fantastic time with many of the villages we work in gathering together for a day of celebration and worship.

I will be sharing a video highlighting the weekend soon, but in the meantime, here is a video about a recent visit into a new area where we are beginning to work.

In this short video, Scott shares the story of Maria, a woman who God healed and who is not sharing her new-found faith in her home village. After visiting in Maria's village, one of the disciples who went with Scott described this village as being at "the very end of the earth."

This week in photos: Loving your neighbor

As we work primarily with village churches, one of the things we've tried to encourage is for the Christians to reach out to those in their communities. And that is exactly what we are seeing. After church on Sundays, the Christians in Guinjata have begun going around and praying for the sick in the community. Last week, Scott took a carload of people from Magola to visit and encourage a woman over an hour away who had invited us to come and teach her and her neighbros. Another woman took in two small children when their mother was unable to take care of them. 

We are so excited to see people truly living out their faith and being light in their communities as they demonstrate their Christ to their neighbors.
