Wow! God did an amazing work tonight

Bro. John Pearson did a tremendous job with the devotion. Pastor Austin Gardner did a wonderful job preaching. I don’t know the words to sufficiently describe what God did tonight. He really moved in the hearts and lives of our people. We had three professions of faith. We also had about 30 come forward to pray during the invitation. God really did a great work. I don’t believe our church will be the same after this meeting.

Bro. Austin really challenged me today or should I say that he really put me in the hot seat. Everything that he said was absolutely true. I felt overwhelmed and really didn’t know what to do. I was thinking that I can’t do this work. There is no way that I can really accomplish what needs to be done. While translating, I was touched and challenged. It’s tough to translate when God is putting a dagger in your heart. God said, “Hey big boy, you can’t do the work, don’t worry, I will do the work through you.” It’s not an easy work. Some people think that missionaries are missionaries because they can’t pastor in America. I don’t feel that is true at all. Actually the work here is more challenging in many ways, but in my opinion, it’s more rewarding. Fruit doesn’t come because it’s easy; it comes because of hard work. I have been greatly challenged and I am praying that I will never be the same again.
