Obama and Missions


Image

What drives you more, comfort, or hunger for the Word of God? This was our Bible conference in Masat, Kenya, home of Mr. Obama. In America, we complain that it’s too far to go to a church meeting. In Masat, there was no electricity. We rented a generator which was a luxury for the folks there. The children were so grateful to sing to an electric keyboard and microphone that they worshiped Jesus with them at 4:00 AM. The nights we were there, we could not sleep because of their singing. This is not a condemnation of the American church, which I am a part of, but a reality check? Could it be that we don’t see a huge impact by the church in the USA because we lack a spirit of sacrifice, when the Lord tells us to do something? What are you and I going to do about this in 2014? Has God given you a clear strategy to impact this country with Christ?

This was our toilet. It spelled an expedition of faith as you squatted over the hole, with your pants down, while simultaneously leaning over to hold the plastic covering which flapped in the wind, so that no one could see you
