For years the Pal team hasn't made any head way in the village that we are conducting the camp. Well, just after these first two days it is evident that progress is being made and the work being done now will serve as a catalyst for the future. God is piercing hearts in this community, He is softening even the adults that are helping. Just yesterday you could see the skepticism in their eyes. Today, they jumped right on in and sang with us, did crafts with us and even kicked the 'futball' around.
These kids truly have a thirst for genuine love that only Christ can give using us as the cup. They are smelling the pleasing aroma of Christ from this group of volunteers as well as Pal staff. This is solely the work of God. We cannot take any of the credit.
If you are wondering what to pray for, let us toss a few at you. Pray for God's favor with the work being done this week, pray for the continued softening in the hearts of those participating and even helping. Pray that these people like the taste from the cup of Christ and begin to ask questions as to what it is. These are beautiful people living oppressive lives not even knowing that they have freedom through Christ. Their view on Christianity is so skewed and that is slowly being changed because of your prayer and the work being done here.
As for us - we are tired and hot, but, our spirit remains extremely high. Thanks again for your support and prayers; we cannot do this without you. If you are wondering about the food and how we are eating, well look below. We are NOT going hungry!!
