The Fellowship of the Believers
Acts 2:42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. 43 Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. 45 Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.
Here are some photos of just a few of the moments that stood out to me in the last three weeks!
We had two wonderful groups visit us from the United States. The first group arrived in June from Craig Valley Baptist Church in Virginia. They stayed with us for one week. The ages of the group ranged from 16 to 84! We went all over the country to churches, schools, an orphanage and a very poor village and shared drama, testimonies, the gospel and food! Our souls were knit together and memories and friendship were made that will last a lifetime.
The second arrived the day after the first group left. They were 13 outstanding young Christians from Word of Life Bible Institute in Florida along with the director and his wife Tom and Fay Phillips. They have been working together all year using song and drama to share the gospel in churches in the United States and we had the privilege of having them stay with us for two weeks and go to many many schools to present their show and to share the gospel.

Statistics are just statistics – only God knows for sure which lives were surrendered to Him and which child just raised their hand because their friends did but I can tell you I looked into the eyes of many children during the past three weeks and I saw light there that wasn’t there before they heard the story of Jesus and how to receive forgiveness and eternal life with God. I wouldn’t trade what I am doing here with any other job on earth. I love to share the life changing Gospel of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and see Him work in people’s lives! I hope you enjoy the pictures!
