Youth Day

Yesterday, we had youth day.  The youth lead the morning and evening services.  I am extremely proud of our youth.  Youth here can be anywhere between 15-35 years old.  If you aren’t married you are considered a youth.  They did a tremendous job.  We had a wonderful crowd in both services.

Last night, a teenager named Natasha sang.  She is an orphan.  She lives with some relatives, but they really aren’t nice to her.  Sometimes they won’t let her come to church and force her to do housework during church hours.  Their other children do nothing around the house, and Natasha must do a lot of the work.  The situation is hard on her, but last night when she sang, I got goosebumps and it wasn’t because it was cold.  She sang from her heart, and it was absolutely beautiful.  She was singing with another faithful young man named Koffi.  I could feel a tear enter into my eye as I began to think, if I didn’t obey God and come here this wouldn’t be possible.  Sure it is God who has done everything but God has greatly blessed our obedience.

Most of the older people that have come to our church have fizzled out.  They just have a hard time changing everything.  They aren’t willing to sell out 100%.  I am encouraged about the faithful youth.  I believe that the youth are crazy enough to sell out to the Lord.
