REMOTE AFRICAN VILLAGE
AROUND 700 PEOPLE
CHILDREN SENT AWAY
Each time we answer yes to a call, it is with prayer and question. TODAY WE HEAD TO BOTSWANA.
Yes, Lord we will go, but what is it you want us to say, to do and to share? You called us to teach - (Ephesians 4: 12-16) and you have opened the hearts of many to listen and even desire to hear what they can do to carry out your command in James 1:27. Yet we are just your simple servants - and pushing on in age. Why us Lord? Why us?
Then the floodgates of many different reminders of His calling: "IF NOT YOU, THEN WHO, IF NOT NOW THEN WHEN?"
So we go forth to spend the next month with this village in the lower end of the Delta in northern Botswana and to the city of Maun. To work with a Trauma Team in "training", to share with village moms who really want to keep their children home and not send them away to schools, to share with village leaders stories, hope and the words from His walk on this earth. The stories of the Old Testament, the hope in Jesus and that they are precious in His sight.
We will be joined with our LAMb partner and team member - who will also be a ROCK of teaching and encouragement. We will serve the local Maun team coordinating the service in the villaga - Bushways Foundation and work with the Pastor of the local church to serve seniors. Then soon we will be joined by a group from the USA - Samaritans Feet - to bring hundreds of brand new shoes and socks to give the message physically - you are loved. We will wash feet, pray and pass blessings on to these amazing sons and daughters. Yes - we go! We answer the call.
Into the village where God has called us. To do the work He has called us to do - and to leave what HE wants us to leave. To Him be the Glory.
