There are highs and lows in every ministry and the ministry that we have in Ledumang has had both of these throughout this last year. This is the Saturday bible study that we have been doing and lately the Lord has given us much encouragement through this ministry. Three weeks ago, I asked the girls to begin committing verses to memory. I challenged them that if they could memorize John 3:16, Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, and Romans 5:8 that they could have their own Setswana bible-none of them had their own at this point. This challenge came on a Saturday and by Thursday they each were at my house so excited because they had memorized their verses already.
They are always asking to come and cook, so I gave them yet another challenge. I told them on a Saturday to begin memorizing Philippians 2:14, Romans 10:13, and Acts 16:31…they showed up on Sunday to go to church with me and all had memorized their verses in just one day. So we had a pizza/chocolate chip cookie party this past Tuesday and had a great time.
These girls right now are hungry for the Word, not just because of their rewards but when we study the book of John on Saturday mornings they are faithful and really seeking what the Lord is saying to them.
We are so thankful for this ministry and we totally give all of the glory to God!
