AN AMAZING GOD
This past month God has continued to show us evidence of how and where He is working in Samburu. Charlie has been sharing the stories of Nicodemus, Lazarus and several others. Regardless of which story he tells, the response is usually similar. We have never heard this beforewhat you are saying is trueplease continue to comeI know I am a sinnermy heart feels something when I listen to this storyGod is going to change me today. They say that Charlie is the first person to come and tell them these truths. People are hearing the simple message of the Gospel, told through age old stories and they are being convicted of their sins and repenting. It is nothing we are doing, but it is the miraculous work of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.
As we strive to keep things uncomplicated and go the direction He leads, we are being blessed to see His faithfulness in drawing people to Himself. The one thing we perceive as a challenge area is for more approved workersones that speak Samburu! We would love to see believers become burdened to do the same thing Charlie does on a daily basis. Gathering people into a group and teaching them the Word of God; using the stories of the Bible for evangelism and discipleship. It is great that they will go with him and translate, but if each one had his or her own group that they taught regularly, how much would the work be multiplied? But Africans do not like to do things on their own. Independence and autonomy are not highly valued in this culture and so we wait, pray and watch to see Gods solution to reaching the thousands. read more
