Day started rough with some of our teammates, Janine had a rough night recovering from Malaria 1, Ovi went to the Doctor and has Malaria stage 2.
On the mission field plans change, Ovi got a call from his high ranking police friend Anderson who wanted us to pass out bibles to the group of workers who didn’t recieve bibles the first time we went to the Hospital and to go to the School for kids who has a parent in the police force.
We went to the school first and I got to go into a class of High Schools for a couple of minutes. It seemed like the few students I looked at what they were working on was a little different, some were taking an exam while others were studying something else. Marc, who is with Hope For The Future for 6 months talked with the teenagers for a few minutes introducing us and the importance of the Bible. We gave each one a copy of GOD’S Word and gave them a couple of copies of John and Romans to share with family and friends. I then was able to talk to a couple of teachers and was glad to hear the first one I talked to was a bible teacher. The was also an English teacher, 2 History teacher, a Social Studies teacher and a native language teacher. The were also given bibles. I asked the Bible teacher if his students had bibles and he said they didn’t and he was using a simple version of the bible [I can’t remember the translation] so now he has a KJV and so does his students. I shared with the group that sometimes it’s good to have more than one translation to get a better understanding of what the bible is trying to teach us.
At the Hospital, they provided us with the same room as earlier in our trip, there were not as many staff at first so I shook a few hands and sat in the rows with the workers. I was able to talk with a gentlemen who supplied the hospital with medicine. He asked If I would come to his church Sunday and pass out bibles. I told him I was leaving Friday, but would try to come the next time I’m in the city. He asked for my phone number and I gave it to him.
Anderson had a friend with him that was a criminal investigater and was interested in our ministry. I had lunch with him and we had a good conversation about GOD, JESUS, The Bible and being a Christian. His name was Risdon. When we dropped them off they wanted our email address, so we gladly game it to them. Risdon liked Pastor Ed’s message that he wanted to know if our church had a website so he could listen to more, Pastor Ed gave him one of his Pastor cards with the church’s information. What a great day!
