Healing Grace (#TeamGambia)
#TeamGambia had the last day of medical clinics today. Overall we saw over 1,000 patients with whom we shared testimonies, Bible stories and prayers!
The village we went to today doesn’t have much access to medical treatment. The people kept thanking us over and over again for coming. We were so grateful that God gave us the opportunity to share the truth with the people there and let them know that Jesus loved them and died on the cross for them, just as He did for you and me.
Please continue to pray for the conversations that took place, that the people's eyes would be opened and they would see truth. Pray for them to have visions so they would know the one true God. Pray that the Holy Spirit would give them clarity. Pray for physical and spiritual healing. Pray for God to move!
Truth Shared (#TeamGambia)
#TeamGambia has been enjoying switching off and doing different positions in the medical clinic and learning some new skills.
Yesterday there was over 500 people who came to the medical clinic. The team shared Bible stories, testimonies, had conversations and prayed with the people as they were in the clinic and outside. There were so many people there that we had to turn some away because we could no longer see to take care of the patients. But we know God brought those people to the clinic to hear about Him.
God is moving in people’s lives. Please pray for the truth that has been placed in these lives. Pray it would continue to grow and that people would come to Christ! Pray for the church members to be able to have a connection with the people so they can help grow the truth.
Thank you for your faithful prayers!
God at Work (#TeamGambia)
#TeamGambia is seeing God move! During the medical clinic today, God set up many conversations, and He is drawing people to Himself!
During the clinic, one of the missionaries, Laina, was able to talk to a Muslim woman. This woman's Christian friend had been talking to her and sharing the gospel, and today as Laina shared the gospel, the woman's eyes were opened, and she prayed to receive Christ!
There have also been several conversations in which people were seeking the truth and very interested in the gospel. Please keep praying for dreams and visions, eyes opened, hearts changed, truth revealed and salvation to reign! We know God is able; please join us as we cry out to Him for the souls of these precious people.
#TeamGambia had the opportunity to worship with our Gambian brothers and sisters this morning. We always love worshipping with our brothers and sisters in Christ around the world.
Today in the medical clinic, we saw God set up some amazing conversations. There was a young Muslim lady who came into the clinic because she couldn’t get pregnant. She had been to other doctors and they couldn’t figure out why she was having trouble, so she came to the clinic to see if we could help her. The provider talked to her and said, "I can’t heal you, but I’m going to pray in the name of Jesus Christ for you to become pregnant." A little while later, she returned to the provider and said, "Who do I come to when I become pregnant?" The provider told her to come to the church, because Jesus is the one who gives life!
There was also a Muslim man who was about 80 years old. He had health issues in the past, and his current health is not great. The provider said, "I’m going to pray that tonight, this man would have dreams and visions and would come to accept Jesus Christ as Lord."
While the clinic was going on, we had missionaries sharing their testimonies, Bible stories using the story cloth, and care providers loving on people.
Would you please pray that the lady would become pregnant and that the old man would have dreams and visions? Pray that Jesus would stand out so boldly to all these people that they would want a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Thanks for your prayers; we are counting on them!
