As I stood looking into a crowd of more than two hundred hungry people eagerly waiting in line for a hot meal, I prayed that the message of the gospel we were about to give would satisfy their souls as the food they were receiving would satisfy them physically.
Last saturday we had the incredible privilege of hosting an outreach with a wonderful mission team from River of Life Church in Winnsboro, Louisiana in our newly furnished Destiny Training Center here at Project Samuel.
It was such a joy for me to connect on a deeper level with our house mothers as I helped them prepare our meal for the outreach. I learned how to cook Zambian fried chicken, greens, and gravy. I still haven’t learned how to make Nishima and I’m not sure I ever will.
As we were cooking, some of our team of missionaries did an amazing job playing and coaching soccer, volleyball and netball with the one hundred plus children who showed up from the surrounding villages for our outreach.
As all the families gathered for our meal, we missionaries started praying for God to multiply our chicken and Nishima as more and more people joined the ever growing line of hungry people.
I don’t think any of us exhaled until after the last child’s plate was filled.
After dinner everyone crowded into our Destiny Training Center to watch the Jesus movie. It was a great delight to see how real the story of Jesus became through watching His story played out on our big screen.
To close out an awesome day, Patricia and Lizzy, two of our children God has beautifully gifted with the ability to lead worship, lead everyone into the presence of God to thank Him for all blessings He has bestowed on us and our Project.
I can’t wait to see how God grows our influence in this community through our ability to meet the physical and spiritual needs of these precious people.
