Today was awesome.
Uncle Rich kept everyone’s attention and used a bicycle, such a common tool here, as a powerful illustration. Many people said later that it had touched their hearts. A pastor said that when he asked the crowd of children who had been standing at the door questions, he could tell that they had been listening well.
Men were challenged. Uncle Rich’s message was powerful and the men responded with transparency and a desire to change. When we split into smaller groups (men, women, young men and young ladies), the men were talking the longest. Uncle Rich told me later that some were confessing how they had been involved in sorcery to get money or revenge on a murder. One spoke about the problems of having married two wives. Watching from a distance and waiting for them to finish, I saw them kneel. Pastors circled them, hands joined in prayer. I felt like bursting with joy! Here was the answer to our prayers!!
God is working.
It’s so exciting!
And the thousand?
Well, they didn’t all show up for the conference….but they were there for the music festival in the afternoon. The choirs sang well, and Uncle Rich gave a twenty minute challenge to the men. He did bike stunts again – which had everyone screaming and clapping and cheering! – and, like I said at the beginning, it was awesome. (I’ll put the pictures up another day.)
So keep praying for this conference. For tomorrow. For the rest of the week. This is all God. Only God. People are saying that, people are seeing that, people are hearing that.
God gets all the glory!
Pray that it will be that way right to the end……
Tomorrow Uncle Rich is going to speak about the way God created men and women to be different. Pray for soft hearts again….
