Dispatches: Day 3

 What a day it was.  I was exhausted by the end, but I loved it.  I was able to teach 25 young men the first chapter of the book on Timothy and we focused on the meaning of discipleship.  It was a long walk out there.  Saw some interesting things.  I was shocked when I saw a man walking a camel down the road.  It looked like a scene right out of the Middle East.  I saw signs of war everywhere.  There was a young man that walked past me and he stared at me with his face that had been mutilated by a bullet.  Unfortunately, I have grown very aware of what a bullet and shrapnel wound looks like.  I prayed for him tonight.  I talked a long time with Getachew on the journey as we walked.  He is a good man who really has a heart for these people.  What a sweet couple Tibarek and Getachew are.

  I have been eating with our missionary group at night at the secondary school.  Young James, our missionary from Australia was telling me tonight that the M  population is very open to the Gospel here.  He was telling me with such excitement about all of the opportunities he has had to share the Gospel.  He said the greatest need they have right now is more missionaries to come out and reach this huge population from the north.  He was telling me that they have been pleading with him to come back to tell them more.  Oh, how my heart wrenched when he told me this. Stacey, we will make it a priority in our prayer for more missionaries to come here and bring light into this dark place.  Well, I think I will head to bed for the night.  It is 10:00 p.m. and I found out earlier today that I will be preaching in one of the Uduk churches tomorrow.

    Thank you for sharing your heart and journey with us. We are praying for you all and for your ministry. Was brought to tears when I read that people are “pleading” to hear more. He is truly the hope for the hopeless. Praise God for those willing to go and share the Good News. Love, The Wrights

    Is war still going on there, or has it ceased? I pray for you daily. It’s hard to believe that those people still haven’t heard of our Lord Jesus Christ. I thank God for people like you who are willing to make the sacrifices that you do in order to go and tell people about God the Father and His Son. May God bless and keep you and yours.
