Prosperity City!

Today (Saturday) we went to Prosperity City and met with a team from the Vreed N Hoop Church. It was amazing to hear how some of them had been trying to minister to this community for years. One lady, Sister Jenny, shared how today was extra special for her. For years she has prayed for these people and asked God to send help and today we were able to partner with her. It was as if her faithfulness was being rewarded and she was seeing her prayers answered!

It was overcast today, with a beautiful breeze. Such a gift from God! Don't get me wrong, it was hot! But nowhere near as bad as it could have been. The constant breeze was a reminder of God's presence with us. We visited around 250 homes and asked them what they felt the needs in the community were. The overwhelming response was clean water and electricity. We saw a ton of beautiful kids and were able to document where they live and if they are attending school. It's obvious that Angie and some of the church members have been there. When she walks through the community the kids yell her name!

Everyone is tired but healthy! We were even treated to chocolate milkshakes tonight! Thanks for your prayers.
