My first week here in South Africa has been so great!! Already the Lord has shown up and moved in amazing ways! Our intern and summer volunteer teams have bonded so beautifully and it's already a family vibe! I of course end up being the mamma figure.... :) As well, we have been able to go out on ministry a couple of times.
On Wednesday Emma, Lynae, and Katie, Bongani, and I were out on shack to shack ministry. As we were walking through the camp, we came across a man named Moses. As we entered his home, he explained to us that his wife had been in bed and sick for over a year. She was unable to eat, and didn't get out of bed. When we entered her room, there she lay. She could barely open her eyes and had a hard time answering. We found out that her name was Cynthia. We asked her if we could pray for her. She agreed, and so the five of us laid our hands on her and began to pray. We claimed healing in the name of Jesus and spoke wholeness into this woman's body.
At the end of the prayer, Cynthia began to cry. We were all confused, why was she crying? Was the pain still there? Was she still suffering? Then she began to say "The pain is gone" WOW!! God healed this woman! She sat up and called to her husband for food and drink. Cynthia talked with us for the next 20 minutes while sitting up. She just kept saying over and over again "God is real, God is real"....
God moved through us in a BIG way! I am expecting great and mighty works from the father over the next two months. I know God is moving and I believe firmly that He has great things for us! Please continue to pray for those we will come in contact with, as well as praying that the Lord will continue to reveal Himself to each and everyone of us along this amazing journey!!
Thank you for being a part of this incredible Adventure! I love you!
