enjoying a step forward

We are preparing for small group tonight.  Last week was a milestone small group for us. Fifteen of our African friends attended and we ran out of chairs.  More than numbers, people are getting involved and taking ownership of the group through praying, serving, teaching, and bringing new worship songs for us to sing.

We lost electricity at the beginning of group so over twenty of us (including our kids who think it is a treat when they get to stay up for worship) were standing around candles in our living room praising God in Swahili.  For us, this is quite powerful.  To start in a country where we were without a home and knew nothing, and to now witness our home filled with people every Wednesday– we have come a long way.  God is good.
