We woke up ready to face to day and conquer it! Our first school was a small private school. When we first arrived, one of our missionaries felt that she was supposed to go talk with a specific girl. We shared testimonies and the drama and she forgot about it.
When we went into the crowd to share and talk with them, another missionary came to tell her that the Spirit was telling her that she should speak to a girl. When she looked, it turned out to be the same girl!
Miraculously, when our missionary went and talked to the girl, she had been praying that the same missionary would come talk to her! Then, they connected on a deep, experiential level and the girl accepted Jesus. God is amazing! Many children came to Christ.
The second school was a Christian school and the students had prepared a wonderful presentation for us! We presented our drama and testimonies and prayed for the school and teachers.
After lunch, we shared with about 300 more students. We went to classrooms to talk about accepting Christ and in one classroom alone, 22 students accepted Jesus. Many others did as well!
Finally, our last school was a large, public high school with a reputation for being tough. We couldn’t even take anything in because it might get stolen. We prayed before we went in and read from Ephesians 6 to remind ourselves of the spiritual battle we are fighting.
Many students were very disrespectful during our testimonies and call to Jesus. But, while missionaries shared, the rest of us looked out into the crowd and prayed for students individually.
One of our missionaries ended with a passionate call to Christ! When she invited students to come forward to accept Christ, three younger high school students, boys, came forward enduring snarls and jeers from many of the 580 students. Then, two brave girls. And, the flood gates broke!
Scores of students began to come forward, many, both male and female with tears in their eyes, broken, convicted, and ready to accept the love of our Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ!
Praise God, it was powerful! The Spirit was moving. There were many miraculous stories and connections that were made. It was amazing how God connected to missionaries to students who could identify with their testimonies of God’s power in their lives. We were all overwhelmed by God’s goodness and grace.
We had an awesome time of worship and prayer on the roof of the convention building at our complex over looking the city, praising God for souls won and more to come! What a phenomenal showing of God’s power. With each day, our team becomes more unified and confident. Our team is growing as lives are being changed. There is so much love between us all.
We are also growing close with our contacts and our translators and praying for them. God is working in our midst and its both awesome and humbling.
Pray that our team is healthy, energetic, and hungry for God!
