Moni, mulebwange! Greetings from Blantyre, Malawi. Words can’t adequately describe how God has moved this past week through Youth Education Strategies! I am always humbled and amazed that God has called me to be a part of what He is doing in the world. Our team has been doing double duty this week. We have been sharing the Gospel in schools along with scheduling more schools to speak with for next week when my brother, Sean, and my father, David, arrive here. It is my joy to share with you what God has been doing.
Yesterday, we were at the last school we would be speaking with for the week; we were originally scheduled to be here earlier, but the school asked us to come late instead. While sharing the Gospel with this high school, I began to notice some of the kids who were playing on the street nearby had begun to sit down and listen along with the students. It was at this moment I had the thought, “If we would have come to speak at this school any other time, these kids wouldn’t be here to hear the Good News.” When it came time for the invitation, almost all of these twenty kids raised their hand to say that they were committing to follow Jesus for the rest of their lives. These twenty kids on the street might seem insignificant compared to the 12,000 others I spoke with this week, but God loves each and every one of them every bit as much as He loves you or I. And He arranged our schedule for the entire week in order that we would share with them. This moment reminded me that God is in control of every little detail of our lives, and that we should find comfort in putting our trust in Him.
