Today’s ministry turned fishermen into fishers of men!
The team performed the drama on the beaches of The River Gambia for massive crowds of fishermen and merchants. Doing ministry next to the ocean always brings a unique atmosphere of change to a drama site. The Spirit came in like a tidal wave and allowed many seeds to be planted and many to come to a relationship with Jesus!
One of our students noted that we were making disciples from the same kind of people that Jesus chose for his first disciples! The area we ministered in is a major fish shipping port between Senegal and The Gambia, so every salvation started a movement of faith in both this nation and the one across the river! God is using our team to reach many tribes, tongues, and nations here.
Please pray with us that God would continue to move in power and use our team to accomplish far above and beyond even our wildest expectations!
As our students were doing the drama, one of our country coordinators visited a nearby shop. As he entered the shop, he asked the owner of the shop if he could pray for him and his business. The man said “yes!” and began to tear up. Not knowing why he was so emotional, Joel began to pray over the man and his shop.
When Joel finished, the man explained, “ Last night I had a dream. In it a white man came to my shop and prayed over me and my business!” Amazed by what the shop owner said, Joel proceeded to share the Gospel. He left him a Gospel track to read over and said he would be back to visit with him more. The man said, “yes, please come back. Once I read this, I want to know more about what you believe!”
What an incredible divine encounter! We have prayed for God to move in dreams and visions, and today, we saw prayer answered! Please keep praying for this shop owner, whose name is Alfa. Pray he comes to know Jesus when Joel returns to visit him!
