A beautiful day in Swaziland ...

This has been a BIG weekend for our family and for the ministry here in Swaziland! Early Sunday morning, Sarah accepted Christ as HER personal Savior. She has been asking lots of questions about this, even before we left the States, and now she is our new sister in Christ, praise the Lord!!!!

Also on this same day, we visited Maphungwane, the area in which our last volunteer team came to serve and work in alongside Pastor Sigwane. Since revival services, it has been growing by leaps and bounds, so much that the people can no longer fit into the pastor's home. We had church on Sunday outside on their grass mats, followed by the baptism of the ones who were saved during revival, and also during the following services. We witnessed 57 new believers being baptized, plus one more that stole our heart ... it was Sarah! You all know how scared Sarah is of water, and today you would have never known. She walked right up to the baptismal and waited with Uncle Wayne, our team leader. Once they presented her, she got right in and was ready for her turn! I wish you could have been there to celebrate this day with us, and to hear the beautiful sounds of these new believers sharing testimony and singing to the Lord. As we were in the baptism service, the pastor drew our attention to the sun (which was shining brightly), and there was a rainbow of light circling it. I tried my best to get pictures, but it was too bright.

God is working in the hearts of many here in Swaziland! We have been so blessed to be a witness to His mighty Hand. Thank you for continuing to pray for our family, team and the people of Swaziland!
