He is Drawing Them to Himself…

J and E are currently in Village Y, along with team members Pastor F and M of Mali and special Korean missionaries working out of Guinea.  They are there to lead a long awaited discipleship seminar, combine with ongoing evangelism activities, both personal and group focused.  When stopping by Village B2 on the way to Y, they greeted our dear friend Chief M and asked about preparations for the location of the discipleship conference slated to start on Sunday.  They learned that not only had news of the conference had spread by mouth and radio, BUT PEOPLE WERE ALREADY ARRIVING!  I had to ask myself, “When was the last time you were so eager to hear about and from God’s word that you traveled on foot, by bike, or by any form of transport you could find, to arrive TWO DAYS EARLY so you wouldn’t miss the opportunity?”  My answer was obvious and probably the same as most of you reading this. Did I mention that the average daily high is over 100 degrees fahrenheit ?

Some of the arrivals are new believers while others are those seeking the precious Good News that only Christ can offer.  Be assured that whatever their reason, He is the one who has drawn them to Village B2.

“No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day. It is written in the Prophets: ‘They will all be taught by God.’Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from him comes to me.”  John 6:44-4

With anticipation and excitement we wait to see what God will do in the hearts of those who will attend the conference and hear the Hope of Christ across the airwaves of the regional radio station!

    How ashamed we folks in the USA should be by the eagerness of the people to hear the gospel!! We believers here are so busy with everything under the sun that we forget how special it is to meet with others to worship God. May stories like this call us back to God as our first love.
