We started off the day by going to church at Crossroads Fellowship, where we heard a great word on how we can take initiative to truly being the good Samaritan.
In the afternoon, we spent time at Bomani reaching out to the community and sewing seeds of hope in their life. This is where I baptized my first person, and the following 19 people. Every baptism is significant and worthy of celebration, but I would like to celebrate the fact that I got to baptize one of our very own students. What an honor it has been to not only do workings behind the scenes, but to also see the fruits of God's increase. God is so Good!
After the baptisms, we spent time with the kids and people from the community just enjoying the afternoon together. We played in the volleyball tournament and lost in the first round, but it was a close game! We also had a bounce house, face painting, camel rides, and many other types of entertainment.
The evening began winding down with Fox River donating a much needed drum set. Afterwards Pastor Bobby shared about a free gift that God has for each one of us, just like the free gift of flour and beans we were giving to the people of Bomani and all they have to do is take it. What would your friends say if you passed up free food supplies? Just like passing up the food we need to make sure we are taking Gods free gift. We saw 20 people accept Jesus Christ as their savior! Praise the Lord!
Today, we were also able to give out some of the chickens and goats. We worked with the local churches to be able to give them to families in need in both of the communities Fox River has partnerships, Bomani and Vipingo. These animals will be a great help to the families in this community. Thank you so much for your donations.
Please continue to pray for our team as we still run into new trials and triumphs every day. We know God has a reason behind all of the obstacles that have come in our way but we serve an almighty and powerful God!
