We were welcomed to Mpumalanga by the honorable Linah Malatji, Executive Mayor of Emalahleni Local Municipality, which includes the City of Witbank where the lectureship was held. Among the guest speakers was Brother Ernest Cato and Roger Madison. Those attending the lectureship from the USA were filled with three days of workshops, sermons, presentations, and wonderful fellowship with our Southern African brothers and sisters in Christ.
There are few words to describe the emersion into the culture of Africa that we experienced during this time of mssionary outreach. We were welcomed warmly, but also reminded of the great need that still remains for those struggling to uplift a nation. I am reminded of the passage from 2 Corinthians 8:1-5, where Paul speaks about the Macedonian churches --
"Out of the most severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own, they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the saints."
This is the blessing that we were greeted with, and which shall remain with us as a memory of fellowship with these saints.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
