God is ALWAYS working - part 2
Written by: Nicci Feathers
Thursday was a great day! We awoke in DC and we headed to the airport bright and early. As soon as we arrived, we were surrounded by the beautiful Ethiopian people and it made where we were headed an exciting reality. We made it to our terminal with no issues and we were able to grab a bite to eat before boarding the plane.
We got on the plane and we were all amazed at how God uses even the passengers sitting next to you to bless us. During the lengthy flight, we were each able to share the Gospel with non-believers or be blessed by another Believer. There were several young Ethiopian mothers sitting near us traveling with their small children. Kelly and I were able to love on them and give the mother's a small break on the very long flight. Steve Rice made a spiritual and business connection with an Ethiopian lady who lives in the US and she was very interested in the ministry. She is planning to drop by the drop-in center this week.
Also, Ed was sitting with an Ethiopian believer and a young Muslim boy from Kenya. The believer shared his testimony on how He is one of twelve children and his oldest brother led the entire family to know Christ. He is traveling to Ethiopia because his father is in a coma. Please lift this family in prayer. His devout faith in the Lord was contagious! But, he is going to attend the Downline conference this week! Praise God! Also, there was a young Muslim boy sitting next to him and Ed was able to share the gospel. WOW- what an opportunity! Chill bumps!!!! This fourteen year old young man soaked up the good news! Truth in the statement... God is ALWAYS working! Jimmy has been doing life on life with this boy for several hours now and watching it is amazing! He has never heard about God before and he is asking questions and taking it all in. The seed has been planted.
Our prayer is that God will allow these relationships no matter how far the distance to continue growing. This is what life is about. This is what God about. He has His hand all over this trip and it's already so powerful!
Watching God work is truly breathtaking! We are all very excited at the opportunities God will provide throughout this week to share His good news!
Please pray for each of us that we will be able to get rest tonight so we can be useful for God's Great Commission as the week continues.
