“I Thank God for You”

22 Aug Posted by in Blog | 1 comment

Reflections from Janet….

For the past six weeks, I have had the humbling opportunity to lead a Bible series at our Partners 4 Africa Center in Bulawayo.  Each Friday night, over a dozen young ladies gathered to encourage, learn, and pray together.

At the end of our time in Bulawayo, I had but one phrase that could possibly describe my reaction.

I thank God for you.

As we studied the beatitudes of Matthew 5 together, I got to know and love these precious, God-fearing women. I was blessed to see firsthand how our God has been working and is still working in the lives and in the youth of Matabeleland.

And with each session, I got to see the beatitudes at practice in each of their lives.

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, the meek, the mournful, the merciful, the hungry and thirsty, the pure in spirit, the peacemakers, the persecuted…..”

Some people worry about the next generation, about the future of our Christian family and of our world. Because of young Christians like these –  who are eager to learn and adopt the principles of Christ – I think we need not worry.

I thank God for the time we were able to spend together and for the work Christians in Zimbabwe continue to pursue..
