Report from Africa #9
Cathy and I have had an incredible two months in Africa. I am writing to ask for your prayers. We fly home on Tuesday AM. We will be in Memphis to hopefully vote before we crash in bed. The jet lag coming to the States from Africa is always a challenge.
This past week we went away with the Lord for some solitary time in Kruger Park. We spent time seeking the face of God and His desire for our future. We certainly have a deep love for Africa. It is pulling at our hearts constantly.
Preaching and teaching this trip has gone to a deeper level. Inductive Bible Study methods have proven themselves very valuable in the hearts of youth and Pastors. The hunger for the Word is so great that we are being asked to come back as soon as possible.
Here is a comment from one young leader who attended the Bible teaching:
Hi man of God. I'm one of the youth workers who was part of the Leadership Training you did together with us, about the bible translation and observations, and I realized that I did not understand most of the scriptures simply because 'we' tend to interpret the Word rather that observing and asking questions. I've started re-reading the scriptures and it's all making perfect sense. I thank you so much!
On top of all this my heart is beginning to desire time to write a book on leadership. As we end our time in Africa I admit my head is spinning a little. We are clearly in need of your focused prayers about the future opportunities that sit in front of us.
We will be seeking debriefing in the next two weeks. Pray that we see everything the Lord wants us to see as we return to America. Thank you so much for loving and caring for us.
Your comment will be posted after it is approved.
