Expect Great Things From God

View All Images from Gambia 2017

Ending strong and ending well: That was our prayer as we entered into a time of worship today. Our morning challenge began with the William Carey quote, “Expect great things from God, Attempt great things for God.”

Our first ministry site was about 25 yards from an Islamic mosque. In the middle of intense ministry, the loudspeaker began blaring the call to prayer, filling the very air with this demand for people to come and pray. Some left conversations, others stayed, asking for prayer for themselves and their families.

Our second site was more intense. This was the site where the Awe Star team engaged in conversations with a local imam (religious scholar in the mosque). During their conversation, someone ran up to Pastor Martins, calling him “doctor/pastor.” Pastor prayed for this man and instantly, he was healed. It was a power encounter with the gospel. Immediately he testified to the imam what Jesus had done for him. I love when God demonstrates His power to validate His gospel! It was an incredible day! I know Jesus got lots of glory out of this team today and that just makes my heart smile. 

Tomorrow, we travel home. Please pray His presence would go before us and opportunities to continue sharing His truth would surround us. #awestar #usherHimback #gambiahasdecided!

  • Teresa Law says:

    Lord thank you for all you have done before preparing, during all the love that was shared and felt, and after all the miracles that You had shown leaving a Holy Mark for all to see You by. Your love is the greatest Lord. Your answers to prayers from many.
    May all be seen so that many more shall come to The Shepherd. Your sheep have gone astray but are returning to your fold. May You, Lord watch over Your People, the New Peoples, may they always see You.
    In Jesus’ Name we pray
    Amen

  • Daddy and Mama Stahl says:

    Amen and amen to Auntie Teresa!
