I want to thank each of you for your prayers for us today. God blessed with a great opportunity to open the Word over steaming hot milk and fried bananas (like those pictured below), and we are scheduled to return for additional Bible study next week! Please pray for Elisante and his family that they would respond in obedience to the Gospel.

This past Tuesday Rodney and I again returned to Ndatu for further evangelism. Providentially we picked up a young boy walking home from school and gave him a ride up the mountain. His home was a little further up the mountain than we normally go, but as we arrived at his home, the Lord prompted Rodney to go and witness to a man sitting by the side of the road. As soon as Rodney got out of the truck to go and witness to this man, a motorcycle taxi pulled up and it looked like the opportunity had evaporated. However, just at that moment the motorcycle driver recognized Rodney and called out "Mchungaji njoo hapa" (Pastor come here). Rodney soon discovered that this man had seen Rodney and I and heard our conversations with others the night we had a flat tire. He listened in the background, but determined he was going to learn more. After hearing the Gospel presented by Rodney, he asked, "What do I have to do to be saved." Rodney took the opportunity to share more, and the man asked for Rodney and I to come to his home tomorrow, March 4th at 2pm our time to share the Gospel with his entire family and his brother's family. Please pray that the Holy Spirit would convict them and that the Word of God would fall on good soil. Pray for Rodney as he seeks to accurately and clearly present the message of God's salvation in Jesus Christ. Thank you for laboring with us.
