This morning brought our first opportunity to preach in one of our Assembly of God churches, Praise Holiness Temple in the town of Mitundu.
Pastor Reuben Mdala and his wife Beverly are leading this growing, rural congregation both spiritually and numerically. There were 200 or more in attendance this morning. I was told by one of our missionary colleagues that this church had some of the best worship in the country. This is only the third national church we have been in, but I can't imagine that any others would or could be better. The singers in this church were outstanding!
It was very easy to preach this morning, the people were hungry for the Word of God. Many came to receive Christ as Savior at the end of the service, and most of the church came forward to be prayed for to receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Pastor Reuben and his wife Beverly invited Fredna and me to their home for lunch. We had a wonderful time of fellowship and great food! This church will always hold a special place in our hearts because we preached here first! As one person said, "We have found a home in Mitundu!" What a beautiful day.
