Entrusted to Faithful Men

 

What you have heard me say in front of many people, you must teach to faithful men. Then they will be able to teach others also. 2 Timothy 2:2

The small room is built out of zinc siding and is used as a daily afterschool feeding location for over 200 children. On Monday afternoons, however, the pots are pushed to the side and the room is converted into a teaching hall. For over five years, two ladies have been teaching Bible stories there to mostly Damara speaking children. Each week, the children crowd inside the room, often times sitting way too close to one another in miserably hot temperatures. On many occasions the ladies questioned the validity of their efforts because so often it seemed that no one ever truly listened. But God….He said to remain faithful to what they have been called by Him to do, and so they did. Recently, God made it clear that all the lessons should be ones that would teach these children how to share Jesus in their homes, schools, and neighborhoods, although most of the children did not know Jesus as their own personal Saviour yet. The first lesson was complete chaos and extremely discouraging! One of the ladies suggested, however, that they continue teaching the exact same lesson every week until the kids begin to understand it. They also asked people to be praying at that same time every Monday afternoon that God’s heart for his children would not only be understood but also taken out into their community. As part of the training, the children report back each week about who they told last week’s lesson to and the results. Many are beginning to grasp God’s heart for His people. Last week, five children gave their lives to Jesus during the lesson! It is extremely exciting to hear these children practice the stories of Jesus and prepare to “go and make disciples”. Please join us in begging God to use these children to reach the nation of Namibia for Jesus.
