It was a humbling experience today to speak at the Evangelical Theological College in Addis. It was great to minister to these students who sacrifice and suffer so much simply to gain more theological training for ministry.
Tonight before our prayer time we got word that the main road into Burji is closed due to conflicts with the Guji Tribe. The Gujis are a warring tribe that is bent on overtaking their neighbors. We are going to have to take the back road in. This will be a 4-5 hour trip on a bumpy gravel road instead of a 2 hour gravel road journey. There may be hostile Gujis along the route. News of this trouble might lead some to make other plans. God has called us and He knows the situation. We are putting it all in His hands. Paul could not go wherever he pleased, only where God led Him. We must operate in the same manner. Could there be a reason for this disruption in “our” plans??
After a sobering prayer time tonight, BeckyLynn said, “We don’t see His glory without risk.” Whata true statement. In our prayer time, Jamie thanked the Lord for our safe journey tomorrow to the Burji people! What a promise from the Lord. He has gone before us for sure!
As the song says, “wherever He leads, I’ll go.”
