We arrived safely home last night after our 6 day “tour.” We must give thanks to the Lord for answering so many prayers and being the faithful God he is. We never had an accident, we never ran out of gas, we never got into any dangerous predicaments and many eternal works were accomplished. And thank you to everyone who prayed.
Here are some stats of what happened:
We made contact with 33 total people.
We gave out over 25 books.
We ended up meeting people in 15 total cities.
Approximately 20 of the people we met are new believers who have either never met other believers or have only had a visit one other time.
We came less than one Kilometer to reaching Algeria on the west and 2 days later we met a guy in the last city before Libya.
We discovered 3 new believers.
We traveled over 2200 kilometers.
One particular story that was really neat… a guy we will name Neji has been waiting two years for someone to visit. He is 34 yrs old, with a wife and baby girl. After calling for two days without an answer, he finally answered his phone. He was extremely eager to meet us. Once we got to his town he came straight to the cafe to talk with us.
He was extremely persistent to have us go to his house to meet his wife and little girl. We found out his wife has been a believer for about 10 years. When they married he wasn’t at believe. He began to believe 2 years ago. We met at their house for only a short time, prayed with them, encouraged them and left them with about 5 Books they asked for to give to friends.
Since leaving he has called us several times. One big prayer request he had was that he needed a job. So we prayed. Two days later he called us to say he found a job. I don’t know a lot of details, but I do know he is very happy and encouraged.
There are many other stories of His faithfulness and mercy. He is moving all throughout the country here. So many of these guys are in super remote places. But the body here is working together to reach all these places and see people come to faith and grow in the faith.
It’s messy. Super messy. But it’s still so beautiful.
Thank you again for your prayers. You people are awesome for crying out on behalf of the people here.
May His Kingdom come here as it is in Heaven.
