This is a letter I sent to our home church to ask for them to add these names to the weekly prayer list.
We went to the village of Mutunda. It is actually Mutunda Farm with about 60 - 100 people who live on and work on this 3000 acre farm. It is owned by Zambians. They live a bit better than most, but are all - still in poverty. They have a church that is sponsored by the owners of the farm, but like most churches, they lack good spiritual and discipleship training. We spent 2 days sharing the Gospel and teaching about the true life of a Christian. They were especially surprised to learn that there is a place they can go after death ... where they can spend much more time than they will here on earth. It was difficult to convey the concept of "eternity" to them. It amazed me to discover that they did not realize or understand what "eternity" really meant.…They have so much to learn - so much good news to discover.
We preached on salvation and after sundown, we shared the Gospel with them and showed the life story of Jesus Christ in movie form. Following the movie, we offered an opportunity to acce[t salvation through Jesus Christ. When the call went out, 36 hands went up. We took those 36 into the church [and only those 36...we sent the rest of them home] as a group and attempted to really drive home the idea of what true salvation really is. It is so easy here for folks to miss this. But, I believe these people are GETTING IT!. We will be going back next week to spend more time with them and continue to disciple them in their new found faith. They are so hungry for the truth.
I am saying all of this because I want to share our new brothers and sisters with you and to ask for you to PLEASE, pray for them. These are real people who need real love …they have real life needs to be free from the attacks and the influence of satan...and to understand the true meaning of Salvation...and living a "NEW" Christian life.
We have been collecting names of people who have been saved in other meetings, but I feel compelled to begin sharing them with you so we can pray together for these precious souls.
I woke up one day and discovered God wanted me to quit what I was doing for me...and start doing something for Him.
