It was so much fun to see all the students smiling and laughing… What a great time!
So now onward we go… here are some amazing testimonies from this week’s outreach.
Group 1 went out and encountered 3 men working on the side of the road… It just so happened that two of them were new believers and were looking for some encouragement and direction in life! The third was a Muslim man who introduced himself as Muhammad (his real name was Peter)… It turned into a great conversation about what it looks like to encounter God and how when we have that encounter with God that Joy is brought to our life… By the time this group left, the two men were so encouraged, and the Muslim man began to ask questions regarding Christianity! We will be following up with him in the near future, as we can tell the beliefs he currently has are being questioned inwardly as he began to hear truth being shared!
Group 2 went out to encourage a fellow student who has been ill for the last couple of weeks. They prayed for her and offered her words of encouragement then went and hit the village for opportunities to share God’s love. Soon they found a man named Joseph who God had highlighted for them… through conversation they did indeed share God’s love and this man accepted Jesus as his personal Savior! His three friends then rededicated their lives to Christ, as they were convicted upon hearing truth being spoken with love! It’s so great when God shows up…
The team then decided as a group that they should purchase some bread and sugar for the family… As they brought it back, the family was in tears, and the team told them it was God wanting to bless them with providence for the day!
Business planning continues to go well. The students are coming together and working hard on their ideas of entrepreneurship. Your continued prayers for their complete transformation would be so valued, as the most common questions seem to deal with trusting partners and what if someone within your business does you wrong? It really speaks to where they are coming from and the hurt and struggle that they have all had in their lives.
We can’t wait to see how God wants to bless these kids! They have given so much of themselves and in return have learned so much already… It will be a wonderful thing to watch, as these students who have been trained up with values that the majority of this country doesn’t understand, begin to thrive in their new business adventures!
