Davis Missionary Journey: Out of the Ashes of Despair

Team Meeting - July 26, 2008:

“The Kananga church plant may not make it.”

“Why, it had been going so well?”

“The Musole family, the backbone of this young church plant, had a 13 year old daughter who went to get vegetables in the market and never returned. That was two weeks ago. The extended family is now calling for the diviners to be brought-in in order to find the girl. The Musoles are devastated, and if they submit to the witch doctors, the church will likely not recover. Each week fewer members attend.”

 

Kananga Worship - August 3, 2008 (10:45 AM):

“Sondra, worship was to start at 10:00. No one is coming. I’m afraid it’s over.”

(while driving away) “Who is that coming through the bush?... It’s Mr. Musole.”

“Sorry, we are late.” (11 other members of the church emerge from the bush following Mr. Musole.)

 

Same Day / The Lord’s Supper (11:45 AM):

“As the head of the Musole family, I want to ask for the forgiveness of God and the church. For a couple of weeks, I have consented to pay the diviners. But I have decided to stop now; no one is above God. Our daughter is gone… We don’t even know if she is alive or dead… But God must care for her now. Maybe God will bring her back to us in a year… 10 years maybe. Regardless, my family will trust in God alone. We need your prayers. We are weak.”

“And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil…”

Matthew 6:13 KJV

Will you join us in prayer for the Musoles?

Witchcraft

Pictured: Diviners and witchcraft still pose serious threats to the faith & lives of our new Christians.

“For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the Lord thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.”

Deuteronomy 18:14 KJV
