As we stepped out of our truck on Sunday morning, we heard many children singing and praising the Lord in the Iris Ministries children center in Zimpeto. As we walked inside, we saw banners raised throughout the church that reflected their heart of worship for the Lord. It was such a joy to see these children dance and worship before their King. We were very excited to be able to return here for church this Sunday, as we have been privileged to spend time at this center each summer for six years. It is always amazing to see how the children have grown over the years, and each one is dear to our hearts.
After a time of great celebration and worship, Pastor Mary Pat was able to preach in this service. She spoke on the heart and life of David, and many were stirred through the message. When the call was given, thirty people responded and gave their lives to Jesus.
We also had a time of prayer and impartation at the end of the service, and many came forward to receive more from the Lord. Our hearts have been stirred in recent months by the outpouring in Lakeland, Florida, and we desire that God would use us to spread revival fire throughout Mozambique and Swaziland. Pray that God will continue to bless the people in Zimpeto, including the missionaries, children, and those attending services from the surrounding area and villages.
