my heart is filled with hope as i type.
despite a very difficult last couple weeks, young men are committing their lives to Jesus in a way that we have not experienced since we started the academy over 4 years ago.
while some in the village continue a barrage of rumors, lies, and nonsense about us - the holy spirit has silenced it all. just a few days ago i found myself crying "poor me"... and today i find myself praying with the 4th young man in just over a week to give his life over to Jesus Christ.
THANK YOU LORD. I PRAISE YOU! may you be glorified in this place! may your light pierce the darkness! use these young leaders! use our varsity captains - both recently reborn and redeemed - to ignite an explosion of faith and love in this village!
why God? why am i so blessed and privileged to be a part of this? i can only say thank you Jesus. i feel so humbled. and completely overwhelmed by your faithfulness.
i anticipate more blows, as i am certain the enemy is not pleased.
its all good. it is so worth it.
i am filled with hope!
