The 4th Wednesday of every month, all of the missionary ladies get together to do ministry together and to pray together. In July, Shawna Davis, Torie Warner, Margaret Fortenberry, and Amanda went out to the village of Molepolole to visit with Mma Thokwane, the pastor’s wife out at Calvary Baptist Church. We went out to pray with her, encourage her, and to learn from her. We took some flour and yeast and asked if she would teach us how to make Diphapata (Dee-pa-pa-ta) and Fat Cakes. We had a great time learning to cook some traditional breads and also had a great time of testimony and prayer. We are thankful for Mma Thokwane and how she supports her husband and the ministry at Calvary Baptist Church.
Philemon 4-7: “I thank my God, making mention of you always in my prayers, hearing of your love and faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the saints, that the sharing of your faith may become effective by the acknowledgement of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. For we have great joy and consolation in your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed by you.”
It took all of us kneading the dough at one point or another!
Frying our diphapata in an iron skillet (they remind me of an english muffin)
We also deep fried our fat cakes…nothing is better than fried dough!
