And how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 2 Timothy 3:15
Let me ask you, how many people do you know would walk through pouring rain, through mud in the chill of morning to hear the Word of God? I know of Churches that cancelled services because of hard rains. It doesn’t matter how much it is raining here, many will walk barefoot through mud to get to Church service. There were even a couple new adults at the 7 am Bible study. We didn’t have all of our kids but surprisingly there were many that made it. It was raining so hard we kept them all inside.
I am still amazed at the attention and absorption of the stories the little children have. Our teenage girl that tells them Bible stories always asks questions at the end and the answers aren’t just repeating of what they have heard but understanding and a grasp of what the stories are about. And these are children that are six and under. I am always in awe of the work God is doing in their hearts and minds and full of hope for their futures.
We had one more older boy get his Bible this week. I am still waiting on two to get the courage to get theirs. They weren’t here on Sunday so I look forward to next week.
Before we got the Bibles we asked what language to get them in. It is funny to me that all asked for English Bibles. Very few speak English and that is very little. I have to have an interpreter for everything. It makes me wonder if they can actually read them. I have to leave that in God’s hands and pray that they will be able to read and understand His Word.
Please continue to pray for our kids and adults, the Bible study has added a few more in the past few months and we have had more requests than usual for Bibles from people in the community.
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:11
