Great Day!

Church at RoungoI had a great day serving the Lord today! I couldn’t imagine doing anything else in the world than what I’m doing right now. God’s work is always exciting! Nine of us left early this morning to go to our village work, Roungo. It takes about 2 hours and 15 min to get there. Rainy season started late and I really didn’t expect many to come because they are in the process of planting. We still had a great crowd of over 100.

This evening we had our first youth meeting. Youth here is considered 18-35. Weird, I know, but that is how it is. We made many plans for the future. I am extremely excited with the direction we will be going with them. A young man by the name of Emile lead the meeting tonight. It was his idea, so I told him to run with it. He did a great job. Emile is in university. He is in his 6th year of law. He has been approved to go to a University in Switzerland and is trying to decide what he needs to do. I hate to lose him as he is a great asset to the ministry, but I told him he had to do the Lord’s will. Please pray that he will make the right decision. He could be a tremendous pastor or missionary, but it has to be the call of God.

    Thanks, Bro. Shane. I know that it isn’t me at all but that it is the Lord. God has done great things. Thanks for your prayers and your faithfulness. Tell your family hello for us also.

    It’s still encouraging to see the people in attendance at Roungo. The people there are so friendly and humble. Tell Emile I am praying for him. You are doing a great job.

    Brother Keith,
    I am so excited that Emile was able to lead the youth meeting. God is so good. He has done so much with Emile in just over a year. I will continue to pray for Emile, and that God will show him His will in his life.
