2011: Day 9

Posted by on Aug 5, 2011 |

Waking up and excited to see what God will do today! On the schedule is more home visits and then dinner at Benjamins house (Benajmin is a great friend and now we are family). First, a visit to the market to see all the local trade happening. Animals and anything else you can think of being sold. Awesome people following and laughing at the “Mazungus” (white people)…fun times! The home visits are such a blessing to US (we pray that the ones we are visiting are half as blessed as we are)! We were able to pray for the Grandmother of one of the boys we visited (Gabriel). She is legally blind because she had been taking medicine for HIV without eating right. This caused her to, basically, lose her sight. Our group was allowed to lay hands on her and pray for her sight to be restored. What happened? She was so blessed and began to cry and told us that we were such a blessing to her and that her faith in Jesus was so strengthened by the act of our praying. God is so GREAT!! After a few more home visits, on to Benjamins house. We were so welcomed (and fed really well). After dinner, the children of the family sang for us…AMAZING! Another GREAT day!!!

1 Corinthians 12:12
“Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ.”
