A Time of Refreshing

Praise God! We serve such a faithful, loving God! For the past 2 weeks a work team came from the States with several objectives in mind. Our director, Jerry Beall, came and we achieved many things. We had a few farmers come and set up some bucket irrigation kits for garden along with bringing many drought resistant seeds that will act as an excellent nutritional source for the nationals. It was such a blessed time of fellowship, hard work, and lifting up the name of Jesus Christ. We're making large strides toward building a brand new church that will hold 350 people on the farm along with converting several old chicken coups into nice apartments for long-term missionaries. Our small clinic on the farm is being converted into a large hospital and many medical supplies and large medical equipment has been coming in through donations all over the world. It's just so awesome to sit back and watch God's people building His kingdom. A kingdom that is not physical, but spiritual. The heart's of these Zambians are being changed as they see the genuine love and passion that God and His people have for them. I just want to encourage everyone today to keep in mind that you are Kingdom builders for the King of Kings. His kingdom is built as we embrace the Man Christ Jesus and His mission which is to SERVE and LOVE the people on this earth by standing on the Truth. It doesn't matter if we are teachers, government workers, policemen, preachers or nurses -- we ALL have a kingdom to build and we can all build this Kingdom as we surrender our lives to the king, Jesus, and serve Him with all of our hearts through "considering others better than ourselves." Jess and I really do love and appreciate all of you. Continue praying for us as we are praying for you.
