Just Another Day?

Nyambe came last night to ask Jeff to go and pray for his sister, who was sick. As Jeff arrived, there were several people waiting outside the hut - eerily silent. Jeff talked to Sisii, a baptized believer and the girl's father. As Jeff entered the hut, the girl was acting very strangely and it soon became apparent that this girl was more than likely demon possessed. Jeff began to pray for her, laying hands on her and calling out the demons in Jesus name. After some time, he also walked around outside with with Sisii, praying for protection on the whole family. After about an hour, the girl began to act normally and sit by the fire outside.

Witchcraft is VERY real here in Zambia and therefore, many people can become demon possessed. Sisii had asked Jeff to come to pray for his daughter because she wanted to be taken to the witch doctor. Praise the Lord for the belief of Sisii, a relatively new believer. Pray for renewed spiritual strength that will glorify the Lord in all things. Pray for Sisii's daughter that she will be delivered from the powers of darkness and accept Jesus as her Savior. Pray for us as we stand in the gap for our Lozi friends and new believers.

Just another day...

Zebras, Hippos, Crocodiles, Elephants and More

As we drove through Kafue National Park yesterday, we got to see lots of animals. We have gone through the Park and not seen anything but yesterday we got several treats. We saw zebra, a crocodile, hippo and these elephants. The elephants were very close to the road, so we snapped a few pictures.

The Kids Are Back!

Just about 10 minutes ago, there were about 65 kids waiting at our fence. They were waiting to hear about Jesus! Each Wednesday, we open our yard and our hearts to the neighborhood children. If you remember, it was not just 3 months ago that we were down to only about 20 kids because of rumors that had been going around about us. I'm just so grateful that the Lord has brought these children back to hear about His love for them. Rejoice with me!
