Let see...approximately 300 people saw the Jesus film for the firsttime...about 92 repented and turned to Christ in faith after hearing the gospel clearly presented... Brad and Sefiri/Sechaba trained 60 village health workers and AIDS support groupmembers in basic HIV care and prevention using the AIDS cube...Sally and Angie, serving as pharmacy techs dispensed medications to over 200 patients...3 out of 6 of us had diarrhea...we slept extra nights in the villages because of weather that prevented the MAF pilots from landing...we are so thankful for beds with mattresses... and hot showers... a lot of older people can now read as Brad and Sefiri helped people get fitted for reading glasses thanks to the generous giving of people at Community Bible Church in San Diego (Brad and Angie's church).
God is so amazing. To be able to minister together with Brad and Angie Stoner as well as Pastor Sefiri and Sechaba was such a joy for Sally and I. We laughed together, we prayed together, we slept in tight quarters on the ground on camp mattresses, ate together, got sick together, and saw
God do amazing things in the lives of Basotho and in our lives.
We now have a group of people at Matsaile that were practically begging us to come back and teach
them the Bible. We know that we have a big challenge to get back there and begin that process. There is follow up also for the AIDS cube training to be sure that people are actually using them to teach others. Right now we are reviewing all that happened over the past two weeks, what didn't get accomplished, and to see what is next. We really wanted to go to Mokhotlong to minister with our missionary colleagues, the Floras, but the rains were so much that the road was not drivable... maybe in March... Thanks Brad and Angie for being willing to risk it all and come and minister with us. Thanks Sefiri and Sechaba for joyfully putting up with Americans as you ministered with us in sharing the Gospel. Thanks for praying for us. Thanks for giving so we can remain here in Lesotho serving God as we see the Kingdom expand... all for His glory!
