1/20/2024 – The Mission Work Begins

Today was the day our team was finally able to begin to engage in the mission work that the Lord has set before us.  After a short car ride just outside of the Mwanza city center traversing rutted neighborhood dirt roads, we arrived at the MBI/Hope Royal School campus.  Our team was met with a very warm greeting from school founder/director Joseph Marwa, his staff of teachers, facility workers and caretakers as well as approximately 40 of the most amazing, beautiful children of God.  After brief introductions, we quickly got to work facilitating a vacation Bible school where Ann Bagley taught the children a Bible lesson about trusting in the Lord, as we become new creations in Christ.  This was followed by an abundance of crafts, games and activities where we experienced such a joy from the Lord as we saw endless smiles from the students, 4 hours of roaring laughter and cheers, and an experience where we were able to bond with and encourage the staff while sharing the love of Jesus with the primary students.  Praise the Lord for His provision, holding off the rain in our area and providing endless blessings that no one will soon forget.  As we close for the day, please pray for the mission team men of Ed Kaleefey, Don Marrell and Neil Kassuba who have been asked to preach sermons at three local churches for Sunday service tomorrow.  May God grant them wisdom and guidance through the preaching of His Good News.
