Youth Rally Madness

For the past week we attended the Botswana Baptist Youth Rally where youth from all over Botswana came to praise God and grow closer to Him. We all got on a train headed for Francistown further north of Palapye. About two and half hours into our ride we got off the train at Tati Siding. From there we walked about a mile and a half to a boarding school called Tashatha CJSS, where the youth rally was being held. There was over 150 youth attending and we ran out of beds for everyone. Palapye’s youth was the largest group there. Not so bad for a church that is less than a year old. God did some amazing things and the Devil tried with all his might to prevent spiritual growth from happening. First the school accidentally overbooked and had two groups staying there at once, then leaders for certain seminars just did not show up when they were supposed to, water ran out at the school and food seemed to be scarce. Even though there were so many things that went wrong the Holy Spirit moved and several youth accepted Jesus as their Savior. It was an amazing time and it was nice to see friends from all over the country. I look forward to next year. Thank you for all of your prayers.

You've been prayed for this week and this old traveling preacher counts it a joy to be able to do so. I just want to keep that fact before you.
