news, thoughts on life and theology
I have recently come back from a two week mission trip to Kenya and Sudan. God did great things and I met many good people who love the Lord and who are on fire when it comes to preaching the Gospel. My main focus this time was to teach on how to preach the Gospel and heal the sick. God confirmed the word and those who went out to practice what they learned saw big miracles and several hundred got saved.
The mission trip started with some days in Kenya, where I was first ministering in a church called Calvary in Meru. This is actually also the town my family lived in when I was a little boy. It was great to meet those I knew and see great work that is done.
I first had a one day seminar in the church on Saturday and I was also ministering on the Sunday service the following day. The next two days my dad had an John C. Maxwell training and there I also contributed. There where about 300 pastors and leaders gathered and it was great to see their passion for God.
After the days in Meru, we traveled back to Nairobi and from there we flew to Juba in Sudan. I was amazed at the difference between these two African countries and it was very clear that South Sudan is a new country.
But besides the challenges we had a great time and God did mighty miracles. After teaching about evangelism the first day the people attending the seminar went out to put what they had learned to action. Many people got healed and even more got saved. The next day we decided to have more time on the streets and it was amazing to hear the testimonies when the team got back. Lame had started to walk, deaf ears had been opened, demonized people set free.
I was really impressed by the young people attending the seminar. They were on fire for God and had a passion for seeing South Sudan saved. I honestly believe that with the fire they had they have the potential to change the country.
After a little week in South Sudan we traveled back to Nairobi and spent two days there meeting people and resting.
I don't believe this will be my last trip to Africa and I feel blessed for the opportunity to inspire the people there.
