Trip to Rehoboth

Yesterday we traveled about 170 kilometers with the team of seven STLD (Short Term Leadership Development) students to teach Choose to Wait. For those who are wondering 170 kilometers is 105 miles. We are still trying to get used to the different measurements here. Okay back to the trip.

The trip to Rehoboth (another location where Christ's Hope has an orphan home) was a bit long but once we got to the church we were excited to share with the young people that were coming to hear us. We encountered technical problems and were unable to play the video part of the presentation, but our team adapated and overcame the obstacle that the enemy placed in our path and we persevered and shared God's plan for marriage with the young people.

All the way home to Okahandja (about 2 hours of country roads) the students sang gospel songs - African style - and it was so beautiful to hear their harmonic voices raising to the Lord in praise! Ah, a sweet sound to the Father's ears, I'm sure. Tony not only stayed awake, but we sang along too. We all rejoiced together for the successful evening of ministry. God showed up and met us there and we were so humbled and grateful to watch Him turn the lights on in hearts who need to hear the message of sexual purity - God's design for Love, sex and marriage.
