Showers of Blessing

For the remainder of the week, Mary and Traci will be in remote locations in Kenya, visiting the Tabitha Bible study ministry, and speaking to leaders and hospital workers in the area.

Yesterday the scene was the home of one of the Bible study organizers. In the photo, the lady of the house welcomed everyone to her home, all decked out for the festive occasion. But at the set starting time, hardly anyone was there. Little by little women arrived from across the valley and kept coming, and kept coming...and kept coming. After an hour or so the room was filled to capacity, women shoulder to shoulder, front touching back, squeezed in for food and to hear Mary speak. Her message encouraged them, but they were in store for another blessing. It rained! It poured. It came down in buckets for about an hour! Hallelujah!

After yesterday's blog, you can understand the importance of that downpour. It didn't mean the drought was over, but it did refresh all who came. They left with smiling faces and hearts brimming. It was a good afternoon together. They will meet up again tomorrow for a big one-day conference with over 300 of their friends. Maybe it will rain again tomorrow too! I hope so.
