THE BLIND WOMAN SEES!
Two men are visiting us from South Africa who have the same vision as ours, “to see the gospel taken into remote areas”.
Clete and Wayne went with us to both the Pequaria and Nacacca churches this morning. (Naccaca’s 2nd Sunday)!
Over 60 people attended Naccaca this morning and Pequiare had 3 more adults receive Jesus today.
Jacinto came boldly in the door of the new Pequaria church with a big smile on his face, followed by his mother (who is unsaved at this point).
Surprises never cease where Jesus is involved.
God is really moving in Pequaria.
PEQUARIA CHURCH BUILDING IS FINISHED! Painted a beautiful royal blue, it now stands out as a beacon to all in the village with its shiny tin roof.
Our thanks to Coopersville Reformed Church, in Coopersville, MI for the gift that put a roof on this church.
A new couple came to our Pequaria church today because their 3 year son was almost dead from anemia, malnutrition, and worms. He basically has no blood and his whole body is swelling up. When asked why they hadn’t taken him to the hospital sooner, they replied: “we had no money to see the Dr.” (22 cents U.S.).
We prayed for him and then rushed him to the Balama hospital. He needs an emergency transfusion, so that is being organized at this moment.
Many people came to see Jesus because they heard He healed the sick.
The power of “faith filled prayer” releases miracles.
The news of miracles spreads like “wild fire” drawing in the lost and hopeless to seek out the healing power of Jesus Christ.
Pequaria villagers are “waking up” to just how powerful Jesus is.
TODAY this same process started in the newly formed Nacacca church, now 2 weeks old.
As I took the 3 year old to the hospital, I dropped off our visitors and evangelistic team at the Nacacca church meeting.
Just as I returned, they were praying for the sick.
Clete and Wayne prayed for an elderly blind woman. Villagers stated she couldn’t see anything.
After prayer, her eyes OPENED, and she was able to see!!!
The shock wave went through the 60+ people as they realized what had just happened.
More came up for prayer, asking for miracles.
It was a power packed morning for sure!
BUSH BUNNY TIDBITS:
1. A STRONG TROPICAL STORM is sitting just off the coast of Mozambique, and is expected to hit Pemba by Tuesday this week (Monday night your time).
Balama is 162 miles directly west of Pemba. We need your prayers for safety as the last one that hit in 2000 destroyed our orphan homes.
2. 30,000 bricks were completed on THANKSGIVING DAY! (it’s just another work day here since this is only an American holiday).
Our thanks once again to Sam Lyles and Nate Bell who gave 90 days of their life to give this gift of love to the orphans needing new homes next year.
3. A new female baby goat was born this morning to our herd. She is coffee brown in color, so of course her name is COFFEE!
Both mother and baby are fine. Baby is up bouncing around on her spindly legs.
4. Mozambique law now states that all foreign residents using International Driver’s Licenses have to get a Mozambican Driver’s License.
I’m studying the needed vocabulary and will challenge the test middle of Dec.
I’ve decided to get my commercial license while doing it, so pray for favour as their rickety truck which one HAS to use for the driver’s test is no joy at all.
Till next week, THAT’S ALL FOLKS!
Blessings from Bush Bunny Brenda and the Balama staff
