Happy Birthday

Great Commission Leadership Team

This past Sunday, was the 2 year anniversary of Great Commission Baptist Church.  The leadership invited us along with the Whitfields to be a part of the service.  It was great to see the growth that has occurred in this young church.  There were probably over 75 in attendance, some of which were from other churches.  In fact, there was a couple from Rwanda who shared their testimony during the service.  They joined the church shortly after an outreach event we had last year.

Great Commission Congregation

After the service, the women of the church had prepared a traditional Zambian lunch with Nshima, Rice, Chicken and various vegetables.  We got the kids something to eat and then just wondered around visiting with different people.  It was so nice to be able to see and take part in such a special event in the life of this church.

Please pray for this church.  Within the next few years, they will most likely outgrow their current facilities (the currently meet in a local school).  Their prayer is that they would find a plot of land in which to build a church so that they can continue to minister in this same community.  Pray also that the pastor will be able to find housing in the area once he finishes Seminary (this will happen in a little over a year).  Pray for Luke and myself as well.  Pray that we would be able to equip the leaders of this congregation to effectively make disciples.
