How do you fit a thousand people into a tiny building?

Thursday, July 10, 2008

Laela was a small village several hours away from a larger town. There was no electricity or running water in the town. It was amazing how many showed up hours before the teaching seminars would begin. Don said that by the time the team was there to set up the equipment, it was jam packed to over-flowing. There were just as many seated around the building to listen to the Word of God being taught.

Can you just imagine what would happen in mainstream America if Christians had that kind of hunger for the Word of God??? I dare say that there would be a revival like in the days of Azuza St. at the turn of the 1900's, when thousands showed up on a daily basis to pray and seek God.

May our hearts have a hunger for the Word of God as never before. May we become discontent with the entertainment of the world and find our enjoyment in HIM.

    Oh Mary! This so speaks to my heart.... We, in America, have so much and still have so little..... I'm part of a team that's planting a church in Mid-Michigan and already we are seeing what a job it's going to be.....

    May God Bless you and keep you!

    It is amazing to see how the people poorest in worldly goods offer so much freely to others - including their hearts. My daughter is in Belize right now, doing veterinary study for several weeks. She, along with the other students on their team, went to a horse farm and a dairy this week - they provided labor doing physicals, innoculations, and castrations. Their "pay" from the horse farm was a wonderful trail ride. After this, the leader of their group took them to a nearby town to visit an authentic restaurant and spend time getting to know the people there. My daughter does not know it yet, but she will be a changed person when she comes home next month. She and her group have been made so welcome by the Belizeans in their area.

    Thanks for sharing, Mary. It makes me stop and consider how hungry I am for God's Word and how I can promote such a desire in those among whom I minister.

    What excitement to be able to share the Gospel with so many people...a jammed packed building! God is at work in Tanzania!
    I find people hungrier for the God's Word in Africa than in America.

    What a great reminder to pray for true revival. Thank you, Mary.

    "Oh! men and brethren, what would this heart feel if I could but believe that there were some among you who would go home and pray for a revival - men whose faith is large enough, and their love fiery enough to lead them from this moment to exercise unceasing intercessions that God would appear among us and do wondrous things here, as in the times of former generations."
    - C.H. Spurgeon
