Brian Brown: Overwhelming joy
Between now and the next informational meeting about Springhouse’s 2012 trips to Africa (4-5 p.m. Jan. 22), watch this space for memories from last year’s Zimbabwe team. Are you hearing the call?
From Brian Brown:
My heart has been filled. The Lord has so impacted my life.
I was moved by the whirlwind of the Spirit while visiting the Tonga people in Binga. Seeing their yet-unfinished church next to the small, open sanctuary with grass and wood beams was humbling. And to see the team work out what the Spirit was putting on their hearts, encouraging the people to keep pressing on until completion, was beautiful.
I will never forget the feeling that God poured out on me when I looked into the faces of His people. When we stood in worship together, the joy and love was overwhelming. It was so refreshing. Even with the gap in language, it was a chance to fellowship with people who were real. They didn’t put on any fronts; they were just real to who they are.
