Is it “Looking back to Lesotho”…OR…“Anticipating what’s ahead for Africa” ???

We sit here on the opening day of Sharathon and I’m given the chance to reflect on last month’s trip to distribute radios in the remote villages of Lesotho. I became very aware that every radio that I was fortunate enough to put into the hands of an impoverished grandmother or a weathered farmer signified so much. Not only did it represent God’s love and the opportunity to hear the Gospel, but also your faithful prayer and financial support of WBFJ. Your gift to keep Christian radio strong in the Triad was multiplied, packaged and sent halfway around the world to people who may never know your name and have likely already forgotten my face. The experience remains humbling even 8 weeks later – having the privilege to represent you in God’s ministry…but then again, I guess that’s what happens every day. WOW – that’s even more humbling!

As exciting as it was to share those radios with hundreds of villagers who cherished their arrival and will hopefully find God’s grace as result, I am just as thrilled at the hundreds more who are anxiously waiting today. And today…we can make a difference for them too. We know of 400 more village residents currently praying for the Lord’s provision. We hope God uses the WBFJ family to answer those petitions.

As was customary for our distributions, I will clap twice and bow my head with open palms anxiously awaiting God’s gift. And then I will slowly raise my head and with a glance of gratitude look into the eyes of the Giver of all good things. He is the provider of every breath we take, every dollar given to this ministry and every life that is touched.
