God's Provision

L village has an annual post-harvest ceremony where they give thanks to the spirits and offer sacrifices as part of their tradition. We had been invited to attend, and we were going to attend just to experience the event and understand their culture more. Figuring out what to do during the ceremony became a problem for us though, because on the third day they eat the meat from the sacrifices to their spirits and we didn't want to be a part of that because of 1 Corinthians 8. We were in disagreement over when to leave and what to do so as to not offend anyone.

God provided this week as we prayed about it. Some stuff came up in another village and because of that the ceremony was postponed a few days. This gave us the opportunity to leave before it started and not offend the people and their culture, but also to avoid violating our own beliefs. We are thankful that we were able to avoid a bad situation like that.
Pray with us for the village and the family we stayed with, that they would be convicted and see the truth.
