By Ben: We started early this morning, meeting Pastors Charles and Fred. The boys went to the high school service and played more music, while John and I were in the main sanctuary. The band is “Beauty for Ashes”, a group that was raised up in the church and is now enjoying some great success with a new album.
We were also treated to some African singing—I’d love to come home with a video of a song or two, with lyrics that we can just learn phonetically!
John preached on “Guarding Your Heart”, and he did a great job! He’s really in his element here, and speaks with great passion. The people love him, as do all the pastors.
One of the most moving parts of the service was when all the little kids were called down to be prayed for! They are all so beautiful!
