Saturday, Alicia and I (it was SO wonderful having a fellow single to hang out with all weekend!) joined some of the Kitongo church members in a few hours of witnessing. We split into 3 groups. Alicia and I went out with a 15-yr old boy named Habili. He led us around to various houses. Alicia is still learning Swahili, and it was Habili's first time to go witnessing. Thus I got to do all the talking! It was a great stretch of my Swahili.
We met a believer, who used to be a solid leader in another local church. When his wife died 10 years ago he quit going to church, and hasn't returned since. We met a lady who had never heard anything about Jesus Christ, never been to any kind of church. We encouraged a pentecostal lady in the assurance of her salvation. We talked with 2 Catholic ladies, one being the wife of Habili. We witnessed to a fisherman, and 3 teenagers who all had different church backgrounds. Two other groups of men also went out that day, so lots of seed has been scattered in Kitongo!
Every time I get to share the wonderful Story I'm amazed afresh at what an incredible SAVIOR we have, and how great is His GRACE. Saturday I got to share six times in a row!! And the more you share, the more you want to go out and share again!
