Sports, Bible Studies, & Dust

Josh and I are doing well in Solwezi, Zambia. We are enjoying the culture, the people, and the ministry. Tuesday through Friday we work in three different schools developing friendships through sports and Bible studies. On Saturdays, we lead a Bible study of our own, which is independent of any school; this allows us the freedom to carry on lengthy, in-depth conversations about countless topics in the Bible. On Sundays, we go to church in the mornings, sometimes play Volleyball with the youth in the afternoons, and we have, just recently, started accompanying our supervisor, Nicholas, to his radio shows on Sunday nights. All in all, life is going very well; we love the thrill of experiencing new things while growing in the Lord and helping others grow in their faith as well.

Prayer Requests:
Pray for more and more opportunities to share the Gospel with those who are open to hearing the truth – whether through teaching or through conversations. Pray that in these opportunities, we would have boldness and compassion.
Pray we would have wisdom and the ability to make smart, godly decisions with quickness and unity. Wisdom and God’s guidance are essential in so many different situations. Sometimes we arrive to a sports field expecting a certain amount of students and receive more than double that amount. We are almost constantly preparing many different Bible studies, each with different audiences and each in differing environments and atmospheres.

We are thankful to see God’s work, God’s provision, and God’s plan. It has been awesome to see how God has used our past experiences (i.e. public speaking) and testimonies to uniquely minister to the Zambian people.
