They made us feel like honored guests which can be hard to handle, but they truly want to welcome their guests. We were touched by their appreciation and hospitality. We were even showed with gifts as we left. It is humbling. They give generously out of their little. I continue to be challenged by their true offerings which are a sacrifice.
It can be difficult to go to new places where people are not as use to us and our kids can be overwhelmed with stares and touches. Our kids broke through that when they sang in Ateso and Josh introduced and prayed all in Ateso. They loved it and felt we are one of them. Our kids helped with hand washing and meal and after we ate played games with the kids. Everyone was so impressed.
Josh preached and the pastors of the denomination who were also visiting saw that Josh has the gift of teaching. They said their people need to know the truth he brought. I am so excited to see what doors God is opening to disciple others.
I love God's church!
