The Intern's turn




Today, it was Owen's turn. We went to one of the pastor's church from our Bible College and Owen was the preacher. It was his first time ever, preaching, and wow, was I blown away. He showed such poise, a gentle yet convicting presence, and demonstrated such power in his stories and his understanding of the word. When I was first proposing that he come and intern for the summer, I wrote down on the proposal, he wants to be a doctor or a pastor. Well, the pastor part I kind of put there on my own, but, I told him today, you better rethink your future because you have a gift. So, we'll see. His time is running out here, as he leaves on Thursday. He has been a huge blessing to our ministry these past couple months and he will be missed. He promised me he would pray. Maybe you could just join him as well. His last job here is to put together a final summary of his time here in Zambia. Hopefully, I'll get a chance to post that here later this week.

And one fun picture, a few nights ago, we decided to play not one game, but two...
Stratego and Scrabble. The winner? Well, Owen preached today on humility and I sufficiently helped him make sure he knew firsthand what he was going to preach:)
