"There's a private place reserved for the lovers of God, where they sit near him and receive the revelation-secrets of his promises." Psalm 25:14
Our God is so good! Life is an adventure serving and knowing Him.
April 24-29 of this year Dan and I (Theresa) led an outreach to the Chilanga area just outside of Lusaka, Zambia. Pastor Lawrence Tembo and his wife Emelda were our hosts for this outreach along with Pastor Geomic Tembo. We were accompanied by a dear friend from South Africa, Sharon Acutt and Pastor Simba Kamupandi from Zimbabwe as part of the ministry team. Each evening we had conference meetings in a rented hall filled nearly to capacity. The word of the Lord was powerful and followed with displays of God's amazing power and healing. Twice in the mornings we led groups into the streets and the market place to pray for people and evangelize. We saw many people healed and delivered throughout the weekend and over 10 people gave their lives to Jesus. It was an amazing and exciting trip.
We have also been privileged to be a part of the leadership team that does a weekly outreach on Sunday afternoons to Cloetesville, an area just outside of Stellenbosch, South Africa. We go two by two walking the streets and as the Holy Spirit directs we talk and pray with people on the streets and in their homes. It's amazing how God shows up and needs are met and lives changed through the power of Jesus. He is so good.
Next month we will be traveling to Zimbabwe to spend 3 weeks there doing ministry and spending time with people. Presently the situation in Zimbabwe is very bad. There is very little cash in the country so electric transactions are the only way to survive. The cost of living has again skyrocketed. Fuel is around $8 a liter. Food is available but very expensive. Two liters of cooking oil sells for around $25. People are desperate and overwhelmed. Our primary objective will be to bring encouragement to church leaders and to do a feeding project for widows and orphans in several churches in Gweru. Funds are coming in for that project already and if you would like to be a part of this feeding project you can contribute at the top of this page, on our website or send a check to VFA at PO Box 24832, Dayton, OH 45424.
Please keep us in your prayers. Pray for Zimbabwe. God bless you all so much.
In His Service,
Dan and Theresa McArthur
