Three two-man teams set out for a two week Creation Evangelism Outreach to the furthest southern border of our Chavuma sector, namely the area known as "Luzu."
Canoes filled with supplies, prayed up and enthusiastic these men set out on ‘Business.’
Village 1, Lingundu: Chaos Prevents Preaching
Once in Luzu they moored their canoes and set out to the village of Lingundu, one day’s walk from the river.
On arrival the team were met by drunkards and brawlers, all attempts to share the Good News was in vain resulting in the team praying for God’s mercy on the village folk, then dusting off their feet they proceeded to the next village, that of Limbwanda.
Village 2, Limbwanda: Ironic Turn of Events
What a change of spiritual atmosphere.
They were welcomed with open arms by the villagers. The Gospel was shared and ironically four folk visiting from Lingundu (the drunkard/brawler) village, where they were opposed, repented and accepted Christ Jesus as Lord and Saviour of their lives.
May these names be noted in the Lambs Book of Life; Moses, Sayitala, Kapalu, Kuhilu.
Evangelists teaching in one of the remote villages.
Village 3, Mutwe Wakayi: Healing and Salvations
From here the teams walked eight hours to the village of Mutwe Wakayi.
Mutwe Wakayi, one of the most remote southern sector villages which seldom sees visitors welcomed the teams.
Once more, obediently and faithfully sharing the Great Message of Hope and Salvation, the team led another two lost souls to the Cross and onto Salvation.
Four folk who were desperately ill asked the team to pray for them. One was instantly healed through the prayers of these saints and the other three, once prayed for and showing no signs of healing were left in the Hands of our Heavenly Father.
Praying for the villagers.
Not Giving Up on Lingundu
Let us together in unity pray for the village of Lingundu, that the Holy Spirit will manifest His Love in the hearts of these lost souls, open their eyes to the desperate place they are in and open their hearts to receive the Good News when next a team ventures there.
