What a day!
Our day started early at 6 a.m. in preparation for a great day of Jesus ministry. Our students gave their all!
We started ministry at an English speaking school. It was exciting to see our team perform the drama well, but what was even more exciting was seeing students at the school respond to the Gospel and our students engage with them in sharing the specifics of salvation. After this first drama alone, we saw 20 students surrender their lives to Jesus. When the students realized how God used them as tools to lead many to Christ, the bus was filled with screaming, clapping, and big smiles . Today, this is what warmed my heart the most.
Our next stop was a school of about 2,000 and we performed the drama for some of the students who are trying to learn English. Our young adults handled themselves well as the students swarmed them for pictures and English conversations. Saying goodbye to our newly-made friendships was hard, but we know we will see them again in the Kingdom of God.
We arrived to our last drama site about 45 minutes early. The students made good use of their spare time to really open up to each other and let down some of their walls. As they shared their "long version" testimonies, they realized many of them have similar struggles and backgrounds. This openness allowed the unity of the team to grow deeper and stronger. This is something us, as leadership, have been strongly praying for.
At our last drama site, we returned to the English speaking school to perform the drama for another group of students. One of our students after the drama, led by the Holy Spirit, clearly explained the Gospel that many came to know Christ. Our students did an awesome job of talking with all of the students at the schools. We are looking forward to see what God has in store for our team tomorrow.
This evening, our team gathered for dinner and worship to cap off a great day. Please be praying for ministry opportunities and strength as our students get up early and start dramas.
To God Be The Glory!
