Recently, Mission10:14 carried out its latest Net the Village project in a remote village in Mali. The team arrived just before nightfall, and the project was conducted the following day. Early in the morning, the noise of a busy crowd grew as mothers with their children, children with their younger siblings, elders from the village, and young boys and girls who were eager to offer their help, all gathered for the event.

Nets are delivered and unloaded as we prepare for the distribution.

As the distribution began, the village chief gave his blessings and thanked our team on behalf of the village for the gift we were giving. The night before, we had shared a gospel film as hundreds gathered in the village center to watch and hear the good news of how they might gain salvation by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Now, on the following day, the team was demonstrating their love, motivated by Christ’s love, in giving a gift that would help protect them physically.

At the end of the village visit, the team was invited to return in the future. Much freedom has been given to share good news of the gospel, and it often takes numerous visits for the soil of the heart to be prepared to receive the Word. We pray that this village will have more opportunities to hear, understand, and believe.
