Saturday Bible Study

On Saturday mornings, Amanda has been doing a bible study in Ledumang with 4 adults and about 8 children. The Lord continues to do some pretty amazing things through this ministry. We have been meeting at a girl named Maria’s plot (yard outside of her home). Her mom used to have a stand on the side of the road selling meat, but she became ill around the 1st of the year and was unable to leave the plot, so she started selling Chibuku (traditional beer). We were meeting at her plot that now has turned into a local bar. The Lord kept opening doors for us to continue meeting there and now I know why. Three weeks ago as we just finished a children’s story and song, we were getting ready to start our adult bible study in John and a young man named Alex around 30 years of age pulled up a seat. It was only around 10:30am and clearly he had already been drinking at the bar on the plot. The Lord had a divine appointment for him that day. As we talked about Jesus and how he picked his friends the disciples, we learned how Alex used to be in church but his friends had become a bad influence on him and he was no longer in church. He had tears in his eyes throughout our study. Please pray for him as the Lord works on his life and that he would make the right choices…he has not returned to bible study but we know the Lord can do great and mighty things.

Also pray for Onalenna who is one of the adults studying with us. The Jehovah’s witnesses have been frequenting her house and studying with her. She came over this past Tuesday and we studied in depth about what the Jehovah’s Witnesses truly believe. She realized that they were false teachers, so please pray for her to have wisdom in this situation.
