As usual we got up early and got our hot cup of coffee to get the day started. After some hot oatmeal for breakfast we headed for the voodoo village of Daniel for the first voodoo bible study that we have ever been a part of. It is truly amazing that God has opened this door for us! When we arrived Daniel had put a tarp up so we could enjoy the breeze. We met outside the voodoo temple and Daniel’s house. We had over 20 people that were seated and many others standing around listening to the Word of God. I opened up the Gospel of John and taught the first chapter. It was amazing how the voodoo priests were looking up passages in the Bible. Some couldn’t read so we read each chapter. We were blessed as we saw the Light come into the darkness. Bro.George, Will, Pastor Wisney, Pastor Harry and I taught from 8:30 to 11:30.
Afterwards we came back to our village and Ginette had prepared our lunch. Again it must have been over 100 degrees in our room. We tried to take a short nap but the heat was too much. I lay down outside on the concrete just to get cool.
John Wesley came up later and told us about his wife being pregnant and how they had no food. We gave him some food for his family and his village.
Later on we had a heavy rain that canceled church but it was great for the crops. We don’t ever think about how much we need water but it is the difference of life and death here.
I was very pleased to see how the voodoo priests and others accepted us and truly listened to the Word of God. We know that it will not come back void.
