Part 2 -- "Without A Hitch"

The men. It went as smooth as the first show. Many locals showed up for the event. Again, the Lord shined His mercy and grace upon us....the show went off without a hitch. Even a newcomer, a baby camel, behaved itself. I was able to spend time and entertain some of my local friends.

Empowerment. As the day came to a close the whole expat community was filled with joy. No doubt, it was the result of the Spirit shining upon us all day! Never has an event created such a buzz..around local circles and expat circles.

May God's glory increase....

Part 1 -- "Flawless"

At around 10am local time the first of two installments of the Christmas play went off. This one was for the women. Over 220 local women crowded into the program. The show went off perfectly. All the prayers for animal cooperation, electrical cooperation, and the expat acting were answered by God.

Keep in mind that 2 years ago in this place, the name of Jesus could hardly be muttered. Now, God has led us to do a play on the birth of Jesus. "Outreach" was made evident as an expat man led a prayer to close the show and talked about "sacrifice" put the pieces was a supernatural experience.

Praise God for this. Part one is over. Tonight, at 5pm local time, is part two...for the men.

May the name of the Lord reign in this place!

Living Nativity

At the end of this week, the Community here will be putting on a Christmas play. In it, the story of the birth of Jesus will be portrayed. I will be a shepard...I will even have live sheep to try to scurry around and control. We have released flyers, told all of our friends and acquaintances. We are preparing for around 600 people or so.....

This has potential to be huge! Although not dubbed an outreach event, as the Spirit leads there will be lots of sharing and dialogue.

Please pray for protection, guidance, humility, and grace.

May His name be glorified in this place!
