One of the amazing things that we are getting to experience on this trip is the family of God working together as He designed it. This morning we were blessed to participate in a church service outside and invited everyone in town! It was incredible to see different denominations and ministries coming together for one common purpose: to glorify God and make Him known! It was like seeing a little glimpse of heaven.
As soon as church was over we grabbed our sack lunches and headed out for Loyal and Okeene (this time we are combining the two towns together). We rode most of the way and the team was blessed by the extra time to gather strength worshipping together and practiced sharing testimonies. After Inviting everyone in Loyal to the carnival tomorrow night we continued on to Okeene.
We could tell that God has gone before us because we were able to have many Christ centered conversations. One of the team members talked to a lady named Kay whose husband (who is not a believer) had been on life support a while back. When the doctors said there was nothing more they could do, a man she didn’t know came to her and said “Don’t give up hope. Trust in the Lord.” Then the next night he woke up from his coma! The students were able to encourage her that God has a plan for her husband still and that he allowed him to wake up for a reason. We encouraged her to continue to share the Truth of the Gospel with him. Will you join us in praying for them? Pray that God will change Kay’s husbands life!
As we prepare to help restore some homes and put on a carnival again tomorrow, please pray for the people in these towns. Pray that God would prepare them even this evening to have an encounter with Him tomorrow; and that the presence of God would undeniably fall upon this place!
