Krista the Preacher!
Last night was awesome! There is a big 3 day Hindu festival going on in one of our villages (Lingala), so we were expecting a sparse turnout--even had to leave early for the meeting R/T all the traffic. 1.5 million people were expected to be in that little village! Not only did we have all the villages present, but our 16 year old Krista preached her first sermon (on baptism) under a full moon in a dusty Indian village on a platform made of scrap wood. She did a wonderful job, and gave a call at the end to the people to come forward if they accepted Jesus and wanted to be baptized. About 15 came, including the young mother with cancer I mentioned before! God is so good! Teenager, middle-aged, older--it doesn't matter--God can use everyone if we are willing!
