I spent the day with Peter Zulu today. But before I get into this adventure of mine, I wanted to just walk you through the day. I think I am compelled to do this because what is just another day for me is seriously crazy. And I have to force myself to look at my life with your eyes so I can see the things that are just crazy. Like the above picture for example. This truck that has bags of cement decides to just unload his truck (or it broke down) right in the middle of this already insane intersection. And what can you do? Nothing is the answer.
Here is the plot of land the Headman gave to the church. They are meeting here, and praying for a church building and a community school to be built. The closest school is a long, long, long ways away!
The church is small but their faith is big. Such a cool story about how he got connected to this remote village. He met one of the guys in his
community because of his daughter going to school. From there, after Peter
was a part of our Church Planting conference with our two ACTION
missionaries, Paul Goodner and Patrick O'Conner, Peter was able to see this area as
a potential church plant. So, he has been up there four times, and a church is begun.
A great day... The most eye opening part was, no one in this church, has a bible. Not a one. The trainee pastor has to borrow from someone. The other had it burned in a fire... Can you imagine not having a Bible? Would it make any difference in your life if you didn't? My first priority... Get this church Bibles! Please pray for this church plant, that God would flourish in this rural place! Thanks so much!
