African Update # 5 2009
Bwana Asi Fiwi (Praise the Lord)!! What a wonderful day. All of us got up and prayed that our day would be pleasing in His sight and He answered our prayers. The sweetest prayer came from Njoroje pronounced (ja-ro-ge). The name means "tall man with wisdom". He gave God praise and thanksgiving for letting him be in this house and to be hearing the things he has heard. He asked his God to bless our day and our house and then quietly told his heavenly Father he loved Him. I was brought to tears at the prayer of this young man who had come from Tennessee and the changes that were already at work in his heart. Most people have known him as Joel Hall, but I think he is going to come home a different person.
What a wonderful way to start our day. After breakfast of fresh cut mangoes, pineapple, chapatti (a kind of an oily homemade flatbread) and eggs, we returned to our rooms to finish up our emails.
