Update from Westoak Woods Baptist Church
Sunday is a day of "rest"

by Roxanne Fry | June 21, 2015 2:38 PM

Today (Sunday) was an amazing day of praise and worship! We arrived at church by 8:00 am in time for intercessory prayer; then at 9:00 am, the church service began with an incredibly energizing and prayerful hour of music that moved the members of the team -- literally, as some joined a dance of praise with members of the congregation! Chad painted throughout the entire 4 hour service (see pic posted to this trip journal), and Harold and Mayzie shared messages with the congregation. Terry then took the floor and the Lord spoke through him as he shared the Gospel. Pastor Josiah and his wife, Mary, also spoke at the service, expressing their profound gratitude for the privilege of working with this amazing team. Mary said that she's been asking the Lord, "What have I done to deserve having these wonderful Americans with us?" --- but the team members let her know most sincerely that they are the ones who are wondering what THEY did to deserve this opportunity to walk and work beside Pastor Josiah and his flock. Following the service, the women of the church once again served a fabulous meal. (With an 80% unemployment rate in this area, the church ladies are very thankful to be hired by Praying Pelican Missions to prepare our meals, in addition to be given money to shop for the items they use to proudly prepare traditional South African meals for the team.) The afternoon brought more children and adults to the church for VBS and the medical clinic. The excitement and enthusiasm grew as the smiles and laughter continued to rise. Following dinner, the team led an evangelism service for members of the community. Pastor Terry spoke about the lies that satan tells us, all in an attempt to keep us from a relationship with Christ. As he was preaching Chad continued his painting ministry, creating a painting of Jesus stepping on and over satan. Tomorrow we again have a very early day: breakfast at 6:45, followed by travel to another local school, followed by more medical ministry, VBS, and an evangelism service.
