Great Commission Seminars
We conducted three Great Commission Seminars in three different areas in Zambia, presented 19 lectures, delivered five devotions and showed the Jesus film five times. We have been on three outreaches and preached at a Sunday morning Worship service. We have had a total of 210 pastors and church leaders attend these GCSs this week.
After the sun set it was very dark. There was very little traffic and it was quite an occasion to see an oncoming vehicle. Suddenly we saw elephants, clearly silhouetted in the headlights of an approaching vehicle. Elephants are surprisingly difficult to see at night, being dark grey. We praised God for His protection that, at the only occasion elephants were crossing the road in front of us, an oncoming vehicle illuminated and silhouetted them in their headlights in time.
"Sing to the LORD, all the earth! Tell of His salvation from day to day. Declare His glory among the nations, His marvellous works among all the peoples! For great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised, and He is to be held in awe above all gods. For all the gods of the peoples are idols, but the LORD made the heavens. Splendour and majesty are before Him; strength and joy are in His place. Ascribe to the LORD, O clans of the peoples, ascribe to the LORD glory and strength! Ascribe to the LORD the glory due His name; bring an offering and come before him! Worship the LORD in the splendour of holiness; tremble before Him, all the earth; yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved. Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice, and let them say among the nations, "The LORD reigns!" Let the sea roar, and all that fills it; let the field exult, and everything in it! Then shall the trees of the forest sing for joy before the LORD, for He comes to judge the earth." 1 Chronicles 16:23-33
Our hearts are full of praise for our great and mighty God Who "has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the Kingdom of His beloved Son, in Whom we have Redemption, the forgiveness of sins." Colossians 1:13-14
May God grant us the grace to live lives worthy of His Name.
