Two precious girls entered the kingdom! WOO-HOO! and HALLELUJAH!
We had a glorious and much needed rain yesterday... a real "frog stranglin' gully warsher" as my grandpa would say. As much as we all LOVE rain here, our numbers were down and those who did come were very late. We had a guest teacher come, Justa, pastor's wife and Sunday school teacher at our city church, Ibungilo. She taught on the white page- Christ's resurrection and how we can be WASHED CLEAN of all our sins through the blood of Christ.
After Justa finished, I reviewed the meaning of the colors and then said, "Today is a very special day." All 30(ish) of them got really quiet. I said, "Today is your day! If you have never received Christ as your Savior, you can do so today and be washed from all your sins." Then I read our memory verse for the day, Jn 1:12, and talked about faith. That to be saved we simply come to Jesus and put our faith in Him and HE washes.
Then I gave them a chance to stand and share a testimony. "Maybe you have already received Christ today, won't you stand and tell us about it?" I waited for awhile, then said it a different way to make sure they understood.

I said, "Asante, na wewe ungependa kumpokea leo?" Translation: "Thank you, and would you like to receive Him today?' She said yes. Then her friend sitting next to her said she wanted to too. They went back to the back to talk with another teacher while I gave other kids a chance to respond.
Praise the Lord... Kefliana and her friend, Veronica, both received Christ as Savior!!! I LOVE to wonder what kind of REJOICING is going on in heaven because of these two little lost lambs who repented!!!
