BIBLE STUDIES.....part 2

Read the previous post first...


          When we arrived at Manuel and Eva’s house at 8:00pm for the study, we were shocked to see so many motorcycles and people milling around.  Jeff said jokingly, “Wouldn’t that be funny if they were all here for the Bible study?”  I replied, “They probably just got finished watching a futbol game at the field across the street and are heading home.” 

As we entered the host’s front yard, there were even more people sitting in a big circle on chairs, benches, and stools.  As we began singing, the people who were milling around outside the fence came in and more chairs, benches and stools were found.  Joshua leaned over to me and said, “I think the whole population of Jataity is here.”  It was great to have Rene, a believer from our Sunday night group, come and play his electric guitar with Jeff on the keyboard.

It wasn’t our entire town, but it was one entire neighborhood.  I counted 80 people!  Many people participated in repeating the story and the scripture verse.  That was the first of six foundational stories that every unbeliever needs to hear in order to be convicted by the Holy Spirit of sin, righteousness and judgment. 

At the end a lady commented for all to hear, “We have never had anyone tell us about the Bible.  We’ve been waiting for something like this.  Do you think we could do this every week?”

God is good.  He is up to something very good in the neighborhood of Hugua Boli.  We can’t wait to see His Kingdom come with great power to this poor, forgotten place.
