OA I Report-11008

OA MSSM 1 11008 has been out in the bush now for a week. We have successfully completed our first circuit, where we have been holding Sunday School Wednesday- Sunday. We praise God that we have had 212 lives accept Christ through our own team members sharing the word. Chad Codding shared the gospel twice and we saw 73 souls come to Christ. He has also been actively leading worship with his guitar. Joshua Rex also spoke twice and we had apx 82 people give their lives to Christ. Josh has also been the “games man” at Sunday school. The kids, as well as the whole team, love his positive energy he brings to the group. Katelyn Gannon has also preached the gospel twice and we saw apx 30 people give their hearts to the Lord. Katelyn has been an inspiration to the team with her abundant love for the Lord and to the villages we visit. Michael Seltzer preached to one of the villages and we saw 51 people come to know Christ. Everyone else will be sharing the gospel this week as we continue the circuit. Mikayla Vossler, Bailey Seltzer and Rachel Toddhunter have taken an active role in teaching the phonics classes as well as loving on everyone of the kids we meet. Andrew Kneip and Jacob Hall have been a real asset to the team as they are naturals when it comes to working with the motor bikes. Our team as a whole has been growing spiritually and are showing a continual desire to learn more. Every night we do group devotions and the team members, as well as the leaders, have been sharing their testimonies. This has helped us bond as a team and create team unity as we learn more about each other and continue to build each other up. We are having a awesome time out in the bush. It is completely different than any of the team members, and some of the leaders have ever experienced, so please pray for everyone as we complete our circuit on Saturday. Sunday we will be traveling back to Ndola base where we will rest up for a few days before doing some sightseeing at Victoria Falls!
Everyone sends their love! We miss you all.
