Ethiopia Report #6

11-28-08

I had a “free” day today.  That meant I got to visit the Clinic Team working at the Galana Clinic.  I had the joy of sharing with Molly that the Guji Team was doing well.  Her husband Jason is on the Guji Team.  After lunch I was asked if I wanted to ride in the truck to take a projector to Dave and Jason in Gujiland.  I said, “no”.  I thought about the dangers involved and wasn’t too keen on the idea.  The Lord immediately spoke to my heart and said, “you have been telling everyone the work there is good…why won’t you go?”  So, I said yes.  Emebet went along as well.

There were problems with the generator, and the Lord worked it out for Dave and Jason to have to show the Jesus Film in the center of town instead of up on the hill where the church was!  What a blessing this was!  So many more people can watch the Film.  A church Elder, who “happened” to live in the center of town and “happened” to have electricity (which was scarce in this place), “happened” to be home, and “happened” to have a way to get electricity outside to show the film on the back of his home!  It was amazing seeing this unfold.  We all knew God was doing something we just weren’t sure what.  I cannot wait to hear the report about the film.

Here are some Guji's we met.  They need Jesus too.

As Emebet and I rode with Demisse back to Soyama the sun had begun to set.  When we topped the hill to where we could see Soyama and the Burji area it had already gotten dark.  We could see some lights on the hillside in the Soyama Town.  There weren’t many lights.  And way over on our right, in the midst of the darkness was a bright light shining.  It was coming from the Galana Clinic.  The Solar Project had been a success!  Emebet said, “It looks like a bright start in the darkness!”  I thought of 2 Cor. 4 where Paul says the god of this world has blinded the minds of unbelievers, but God has shown in our hearts the light of the glory of God.  That Clinic now can shine the light of Jesus into this dark place!  What an amazing ministry to be a part of!
