Sorry about the lack of updates. We’ve had a combination of late nights
(crusades until 10 or 11pm) and lack of internet at one of the two hotels we
are using. Everything is going
well. So far we have done 7 crusades and
preached at 6 churches on Sunday. Monday
we started four classes on Gospel of Mark and two classes on Biblical
Theology. In addition to the six
teachers, we have in our group five people who are teaching Bible at a local
elementary school and two nurses.
Cute story: One of the 14 year olds at the middle school our
group is teaching at wants to be a pastor.
When we started the new cohort to train pastors in January this student
shows up wanting to take part. When we
was told he would have to finish his schooling before he could join our
training he started crying.
Another story: One of our students preached a crusade. Afterwards several people came up to him and
expressed surprise about how well he explained the Bible. He replied that he learned at Bible
college. “You go to the Bible college in
Accra (the capital about 14hrs away by car)?”
“No here in this town” Everyone
was amazed that he could learn how to preach the Bible here in the North.
(This was written while eating breakfast because that is
basically the only opportunity as we will be teaching until supper then have
two crusades tonight).
