During my more than 37 years in Africa I have worked with many churches and village chapels. I have now started a tour on Sundays moving from village to village saying farewell to those in the churches/chapels. So far I have been to two villages and I have two more "booked". I have others trips yet to arrange.
Here is Yisinga, where I was last week. I have ministered in this chapel many times over the years. Money from my friends in the States helped pay for the building of the chapel building (hangar type). Last Sunday attendance was 72 people. There were twelve who stood up at the end of the service to pray to start believing in Christ, including one of the village Chiefs. Praise the Lord.
After lunch on Sunday I was invited for a meal at the home of the Deacon and Deaconess. Villagers also gave me a gift of stalks of sweet bananas, cooking bananas (plantains) and also taro to take home with me.
1. My farewell tour is going well and I have been able to let villages know in advance when I plan to arrive.
2. My packing, sorting, getting rid of "stuff" is going fairly well and I plan another small garage sale this coming Friday.
3. I am on a weight loss challenge that ends November 1st and so I am least making SOME wise choices in my eating, amidst my not so wise choices.
Have a good day!!
