After spending the night in a village last Saturday, we came home excited and totally exhausted, but in a good way! With Michael at the controls, we and our co-workers Tim and Shelly had the opportunity to fly into a nearby village to show the Jesus Film, and had a great time. The house was packed for the show and we were loved on and danced for the whole time. It truly was a remarkable experience! It was completely emotionally overwhelming at times the way the people welcomed us with song and dance and LOTS of hugs and special blessings.
These are the people of the Yali tribe, living in a village called Mobenggama. It is the tribe of one of our national co-workers and his wife, Nus and Otina. They were overwhelmingly grateful for the opportunity to take the gospel into their valley and reach more people with the Good News. This village in particular already has many believers and a church, which is where we showed the film. There are many surrounding villages however that have many not-yet-believers, so they were all invited. Many came – we could hear them singing and chanting their way through the mountains as they came.
Our prayer was and is that God will use this film showing to touch more and more hearts with His love and truth. Please pray with us!
Also, please keep praying with us about the possibility of moving to a different island. We and our leadership are seeking God’s will in many dynamics related to the decision. Here, we say it’s “dalam proces” (in process). May God’s will be done!
Blessings to you today!
