Challenging Preaching Opportunity
This Sunday I have the privilege of preaching at Kamaza CCAP church situated in a rural village on the Mozambican border. One of our juniors hails from that village and has asked for some time that I go with him to preach the gospel. In his words, explaining the church to me, he writes "The church is located in the total village setting where many people have assimilated to the cultural behaviors of the refugees (from the 20-year Mozambican civil war). The people surrounding the church are tribally Chewa and deeply rooted into the traditional religions, including the following of evil spirits." So, will you pray for this trip? I will preach the gospel as clearly as I can, but it will take something more wonderful than any words to pierce, challenge, convict, crush, and overcome the darkness into which we travel. I'll be taking about five male students with me. Thanks for your considerate trips to the throne of mercy.
