We hope y’all had a great day of Sunday worship with Pastor Eric. So much to update you on. Sunday we went to 3 worship services: 1) Kings Kids (Windhoek toddlers), 2) Agape Youth (our kids that we will take to bible camp), 3) Korean Missionary service. Dan Sin was brought to tears as he listened to the toddlers sing God is so good in English, Herero dialect, and then in Korean! Then for Agape Youth service, Steve gave a powerful, biblically faithful sermon from Romans on glorification and how it ties into justification and sanctification. Heavy stuff!..yet stated so simply and clearly and the kids all were locked in and absorbing! We were all floored at the scripture drenched prayers of some of the children during the service. The last service was with the Korean missionaries at a local reformed Baptist church, and Rob delivered a beautiful message on the same text from Romans! Not pre-planned but just so happened to be on similar themes. Rob wonderfully adapted suffering endured by the Apostle Paul and greatly encouraged the missionaries and Steve/Seoyoen. The day was closed by a nice braii (Namibian BBQ) at Senior Pastor Park’s home and we had a nice 30th birthday (Dan Sin) and a belated birthday for Jen Chon.
Monday was a busy day visiting the homes of the Agape Youth worship team members who live in Ehambo (town in Windhoek), seeing up close how they live. We met some of their families, and Pastor Rob was able to pray for them whilst in their homes.
It was so encouraging to see the faithfulness of some of these kids. Their homes have so little in terms of material items, but some of their homes/rooms had scripture written on the walls and one even had pictures of our Linda Yoon and Steve/Seoyeon. As we walked through their town, holding the hands of children (9 and 10 years old but the size of a 4 or 5 year old), it was so encouraging to hear some of their stories….. of recently coming to Christ, having transformation of lives, and of being involved and loving the ministry of Agape Youth in Windhoek.
New Hope, please pray for the team; for physical health, spiritual protection and team unity especially with the Korean missionaries.
Today, we will continue to prepare for the Agape Youth Bible camp (which begins on Thursday), have a return visit to Hope Village orphanage, and then another visit to more homes of children in Agape Youth.
Thank-you so much dearest brothers and sisters. We are blessed and thankful for your continued prayers.
