LIVING HOPE TABERNACLE - SOWETO, SOUTH AFRICA
I had the privilege of preaching on Sunday at Living Hope Tabernacle, which is Pastor Praise Nkosi's home church. It was really encouraging for me to see how much the church has grown in the last couple years since I was here and to see what a great job that Praise and everyone at the church was doing. Each of the young people and all of the other elders and Pastors have such a sense of ownership of what God is doing -- it is cool to see. There are so many young kids -- such a sign of life!
I preached on Luke's account of the Road to Emmaus and we had communion together. There were two young people who made first time decisions to follow Jesus and what a privilege to take part in their decision.
The worship was wonderful and Isaiah got a kick out of the fact that at one point -- many of the women broke out into dance in the service!
We need to help raise some money for a keyboard for their worship team! Anyone interested -- let me know!
