Update from Westoak Woods Baptist Church
Saturday in South Africa

by Mayzie Evers | June 20, 2015 2:28 PM

Today our team got into the heart of our ministry -- the medical clinic and Vacation Bible School. However, before those happened, we visited the Apartheid Museum in Johannesburg. Although many team members knew what apartheid was, we had no idea the devastating effects of it and the passion, power, and persistence it took to remove apartheid. Many men and women, young and old, gave their lives and time and resources to fight the systemic injustice found in their government. It led me to ask myself if I believed in something so strongly -- really, the Gospel. That question led me throughout the day as continued our ministry. This afternoon was very busy: our Vacation Bible School began with 140 kids and the medical clinic is still being run as I write this at 9 pm! The joy of Jesus is so evident at the church. Community isn't just a word said here; it is a lifestyle lived. Being around the loving and joyous (and energetic!) kids made that evident. This evening we led separate Bible studies for the men, women, and children of the church. As for the women, we studied several ladies of the Bible in light of four characteristics of a Godly woman: redemption, beauty, strength, and submission. The women's study was full of the Spirit, and after we shared our teachings there was a time of prayer. The Lord is giving us many opportunities to edify our brothers and sisters in Christ while on this trip. Please pray for us that we could encourage them and serve as needed! Blessings!
