Last night Pastor Vicki led a women’s Bible study for 20 women. We were a mix of Africans and Americans, but all thirsty and eager for the message from the Word of God. We talked about the Fruits of the Spirit from Galatians, chapter 5…love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness & self-control. We talked about the fruits that came naturally to us, and through tears we shared testimony about those fruits that we all struggle with each day. As we prayed for each other, our sister and friend, Nozuko challenged us to “dust off” those fruits that challenge us and let them shine for the Lord.
So friends, each morning as we awake in this beautiful country, we “dust off” our shoes and we roll up our sleeves and pray that God will use us to bear fruit for His glory. As we paint and brick on the job site, as we meet and encourage the army of servants who are doing God’s work in this community in Paarl, and as we share in a mutual desire to be a reflection of God’s love in all things, please pray for us…that we dust off any barriers that keep us from linking arms in the fight to win souls for Christ. God is so incredibly good!!!
