One village reaches another village

One village reaches another village

What happens when one village gets burdened to reach the next village over? That’s exactly what we experienced when a new church plant started living out the “Go” that Jesus talks about in Matthew 28.
So where do you begin? It starts with building relationships, getting permission from the chief to meet in his territory, and going house to house telling them about Jesus. It’s a process that can take time. We started to pray and meet with the people in the village of Dutlwe (Doo-Kway) and could tell that a foundation was needed. The pastor from the burdened church started to preach that it was Jesus and Jesus alone that could save, not the church, witch doctor, or ancestor worship. After months of answering questions that are the foundation of our faith, missionary Brent Turner had an opportunity to use the “Two Paths” evangelism tool that we often times use in Botswana to clearly explain the Gospel (Matthew 7:13-14). At the end of this gospel presentation he asked two very important questions: 1)which path are you on and 2)which path would you like to be on? Before he finished one of the ladies yells out, “wide, Wide, WIDE, and I want to be on the narrow path.” Another lady said she always thought church membership allowed her to be on the narrow path but now is seeing that it’s Jesus alone that will allow her to be on the narrow path. That day all 15 people in that meeting asked Jesus into their hearts. Please pray that this group in the village of Dutlwe will grow.
