We were so excited to welcome Mt Zion Baptist Church from Alabama to come with their IWC (International World Changers) team of 40 people to work with us here in Botswana in early June. Unfortunately on the way to the Atlanta airport from Huntsville, their bus had an accident and one young girl Sarah Harmening (17 years old) was killed and many others were very seriously injured. Needless to say, this team was not able to come to Botswana to serve at this point. I think sometime we look at situations in life and have the tendency to ask God why this happened. To be honest we may never know the answer to that question in many situations in life, but we have seen how God's hand was certainly at work in this situation. If this team would have come to share Jesus here in Botswana, many 100's would have heard the gospel and it would have been amazing. Through this tragic accident hundreds of thousands have heard Sarah's story and her love for Jesus. See the journal from Sarah written below on the day of the accident. God is certainly receiving glory through her life and witness.
Join with us in continuing to pray for the Harmening family and all those affected especially Mt Zion Baptist Church.
