Surprised by God!
Report from Africa # 2
Pictured above is a fireside chat with pioneer pastors of Mpumalanga and Limpopo, South Africa. God has used these leaders in unique and powerful ways over the last forty years. One Bishop has planted and is operating fifteen churches. Another has done the same with eight churches.
We brought them in for several days of rest, relaxation, renewal and vision casting for the future. The Word of God became the center of our discussions and sharing sessions. There biggest struggle was clearly the prophets who have descended on their country promising prosperity, miracles and a special Word from a Man of God!
It became clear that we need to get alone with God and allow Him to speak His Word to us. We need to contend for the faith with the truth of God's Word. But it must be done with a gracious and learned tongue. We need to speak the words that sustain the weary hearts of hurting people.
Each day seemed to swell above the thoughts of the day before! Stories were shared that cause you to pause and praise our wonderful God! I wish you could have been here to experience those electric moments.
Thank you for your prayers that brought this gathering to the throne of God. It has surpassed all of our hopes for this week. We can't wait to see you face to face and share some of the incredible stories.
Cathy and Danny Sartin
