On the Chipurana: Day #3

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

Up at 4:00 a.m again to meet with the church. Sang, prayed, read the Bible. Good time. The believers let me know that they were a bit upset that my sermons were only a hour long.... Met with the elders and found many internal problems. Tried to encourage them to work in unity, humility and love for one another. I'll have to deal with this further upon my return. Ate breakfast and headed back up river four hours to the next village. Finished reading Acts and then all of Romans. In Leche the believers were excited to see us and Jorge Luis immediately went into the woods to hunt for lunch. In about an hour he was back with a zahino. Maybe the best meat I've ever tasted! After a bit of door to door evangelism we began our open air meeting. The whole village came out (200 people). Samuel gave his testimony. Edinson led the music and I preached Gen 6:5-13. Everyone listened well. One lady made a profession of faith, and it seemed that everyone was impacted. Praise the Lord.

Zahino- very interesting! Did it taste like boar or hog?

Yup, you are definitely in another country. If you preached for an hour here, everyone would complain that you were long-winded. :) When do you think you will be able to return to this village?

Praying for y'all!

I am really enjoying this series! Praying for hearts to be impacted for Him and for safety and stamina for Micah and Amy at home with the kids.

@Marsha, Micah says, "I have no idea what boar tastes like, but it is like a boar...

does that answer your first question? ;)


as for the second question, we're trying to figure out how to visit ALL the villages without having Micah gone ALL the time. He'd love to visit every couple of months, but it will probably end up being every 6 months.

thanks so much for your prayers!
