We have now made it through the fourth day of training. It has been an absolute joy being with these brothers, singing with them, and studying the Word of God together. They are so filled with joy, especially at the mention of Jesus Christ. Every connection that we make to Him from the OT elicits hallelujahs and, at times, rounds of applause. It’s not because of great teaching but because of great truth. They love Jesus! They stand to read the Scriptures with so much charisma and boldness it’s like they’re preaching a sermon. Every song they sing is powerfully sung from the diaphragm as if God Himself were present to hear them. And he is. We are sensing His presence this week. He is helping us teach. He is helping them understand and make connections. He is stirring our hearts and knitting them together in love. These are our brothers in Christ — our family.
