Today I said goodbye to my company. They have begun their 40 hour journey home. However, as they leave, I will have the pleasure of building friendships and relationships with those that they leave behind. After Lisa and I spoke at the women’s conference, the church asked me to come and lead a bible study for the women! What we preached was well received! Please pray that this opportunity becomes a reality and that these women would come and learn. It was such a joy visiting this church, meeting these women, praying over them, and watching as many of them were baptized. I will testify that, from what I have seen over the past week, this church has a lot of fruit, and I hope to disciple some of the growing number of women there.
Below is a picture of the watering hole where many of the new believers were baptized. All I can say is it takes a great leap of faith and courage to be baptized in this water. Not very often do you hear a pastor pray over the water before baptizing people in it. The prayer was that it would be sanctified (purified) from all parasites and life threatening diseases.
You can see the men on the right with the donkey cart fetching water while everyone is being baptized.
