Day Two Kayamandi

Friends... Finally made it to an internet cafe w/highspeed access. We're tired, but good and tired. It's been cold and rainy here, but I'm oh so thankful for the people @Patagonia who created capilene underwear and for a good friend who told me how to wear it/layer it ("insulating layer, base layer, top layer; but don't tuck in the tops, otherwise the heat and moisture from your body can't escape." Who knew?) God's Spirit and hand are heavy upon me, and I'm so glad. His Word is deep, powerful, personal, intense, and oh so real, leaving me oh so thankful, silent, in awe... From Oswald Chambers: "Personal contact with Jesus alters everything. Be stupid enough to come and commit yourself to what He says..." (I am the Way... I came to give you life full and free... I didn't come to bring peace, but a sword... This is the way, walk in it... and on and on and on) We're listening and watching a Jesus we don't normally see in America. He's real, raw, brutal, merciful, humorous. We're away from the distractions which delude us and kill our souls. It's hard, but it's oh so good... We need prayers to surround us, so please do your best to fill your days and nights, your moments and seconds with powerful, intentional, Spirit-filled words. His Presence is here with us and throughout Kayamandi, a place where people have nothing but the air in their lungs and the clothes on their backs ... but what they do have is a huge Jesus who comes with a sword, gives life that is truly Life, knocks on doors expecting an answer, walks on water to get to our storm-tossed boats, spits in mud and gives sight where there was none before, tosses the manipulators from His temple, confronts a man filled with a legion of demons, senses when the threads of His robe are touched, defies death, walks out of tombs, leaves His blood on a Cross... that's the Jesus we're with in South Africa... Please keep praying...

I am so thankful that same God that brings sight to the blind and walks on water is also here now with us in America.

Praise Him! Let's dare daily to open our eyes and look at Him.
