DAY 3 ENDED, NOW DAY 4 STARTS
It always amazes me what God does and how His plans are not our plans. Yesterday we went to visit a friend up about an hour outside of the city, where we broke bread, shared in music (Gavin did a fantastic job, so Spirit filled) and some great conversation. This person is so close. We asked if we could pray for him and his response was I want to pray for you because you have come a long way to see me. Truly a wonderful time. Then a friend entered his home right before, and in most cases the conversation would stop, but when asked if we should continue he replied, "Yes, please continue." The friend was a government official and it was so wonderful to see his willingness to continue and not be ashamed. So great.
Then on the way back we stopped at the highest point of the area and prayed over the area. God tells us to take everything to Him in prayer, He listens and will answer. And we were able to see a herd of camel running alongside of us on the drive home...TOO COOL.
The evening was filled with another ESL and more open sharing of the Spirit, the lives here and many conversations. Last night's conversation was on forgiveness and bitterness. Pretty deep conversations.
Today we are headed to different places. One is for prayer, one is to visit the burial tomb of the prophet Job and the last is to partake in a meal and another time of sharing in the home of a seeker. Right now it seems that we will be partaking of a traditional meal also at the home. And yes he owns many camels. It seems that I am not the only one on the team who loves CAMELS.
Here is today's verse for us on strength:
The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to tread on the heights
Thank you again for your prayers.
