We started the day taking Houston weather with us as it was hot and the crowds were really large. Our team was completed today as Nathalie and Lorine made it to the mission trip. It is a blessing to others to have such a large team as 12 of us are working now.
With the large team we are out praying more and teaching scripture and worship. This church and area have a large number of children. Becca and Lorine took out soccer balls and the kids loved kicking the ball around. Awty International donated coloring books that Lorine brought. Becca, Lorine and Michael tried giving out pages of the books for them to color. To say it was challenging for the kids to understand that we had enough for all of them would be an understatement. It became untenable and Becca and Lorine moved the coloring to the church where the kids were waiting for the doctor.
In the afternoon Becca taught the kids dance moves to the songs we use at COTHA and they picked them up quickly. The children are really good at dancing and praising Christ through song. They plugged Becca’s phone into their system to play the songs. The children here are scriptually advanced and were testing Michael and Becca yesterday and Sunday.
Today, Michael and Becca were able to teach the children and young adults. There was a teenage girl asking why Absalom killed his brother which became a scripture lesson on 2nd Samuel Chapter 13 with age appropriate kids.
Vicky and Ewena were on the prayer team that brought a woman to Christ. They said you could see the Holy Spirit really change her. The woman had 7 children and none of them had ever seen a doctor before today. They also prayed for a young lady who had numbness on one side of her body.
Lee and Doug prayed for a woman who is taking care of someone’s baby because the mom had died and dad was in prison. The baby is doing well. The doctors treated 965 today and we gave away 1000 nets. Tomorrow we head to a new church that is in the bush about an hour away.
