This Sunday morning #TeamGambia awoke to torrential rain pours that flooded the streets and side roads throughout the city. Because of the intense rains, the team was delayed in going to church this morning. As the team waited, they decided to get in small groups and spend some time in fellowship and prayer.
As the team was gathering one of the youngest team members on the trip (Peggy & Joel’s 10 year old son) asked if he could go to the side grocery store. As he walked the aisle of the store, a Muslim young man who worked at the store approached him and asked him if he would pray for him, in the name of Jesus! A little shocked, Ben ran to get his dad.
Joel went back into the store with Ben and not only prayed with the young worker, but then all the workers came out and he got to pray and share the gospel with the entire store's staff.
What the team thought was a delay was really a pre-arranged divine appointment!
This encounter reminded each of us of Proverbs 16:9, “We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.”
After this encounter, the bus was able to make its way through the flooded roads and take everyone to church. After an incredible church service, a small group of #TeamGambia stayed back and held a small medical clinic for church members that had not been seen during the medical part of the trip.
This evening the team regrouped and headed to the beach for an evening of Jesus ministry. Literally hundreds of local Gambians gathered around as the team performed the drama and then went out in ministry teams. It was an incredible day and night of Divine Encounters.
Thank you to everyone that has been praying for us. We see the fruit of all the prayers as we step out each day and boldly share the gospel with so many that have never heard. Please keep praying.
Tomorrow will be our ‘official’ last day of ministry before we leave the country. Jesus Ministry never stops, so we plan to be sharing Jesus until we leave, but tomorrow will be our last day of performing the drama in the markets. Pray our team has a supernatural drive tomorrow, that they will be anointed with passion and energy like never before, to boldly proclaim the Truth.
