So far our days had been very busy. For three days Shené had taught leaders from different churches about the Kingdom of God. It was heart-warming to hear their testimonies of new revelations .
This was followed by a two day workshop on Human trafficking presented by Jaqueline.
During the evenings we showed different films at different locations.
Last night we travelled through thick bush over a bumpy road to a fairly big village where the witchdoctor ‘s house was painted pink. A lot of small kids quickly gathered around us and among the adults many drunkards. One of them introduced himself to me as Henry .I greeted him by hand and started talking to him. He knew about the prodigal son and the lost sheep ,but it seemed to me as if he was shy of his drunkenness. During our conversation I repeated a few times that God accepts one as you are.
He had many questions and I invited him to come to church today .
What joy when Hendry sat in the front row today, neatly dressed and with shining face.
Pastor Michael spoke to him after church and said later that Henry came because we were friendly to him even while he was drunk.
