IRIS Harvest School of Missions was great but incredibly hectic.
We stayed in tents near Johannesburg for the first two weeks and froze. However, all of the teaching was great. We also took food to people in the shanty towns where most of the people seemed to be refugees from other African nations.
After South Africa, we stayed in Pemba, Mozambique, for a month where it was sweltering. So we’ve seen all temperatures. At one village we visited, God saved almost the whole village after seeing the “Jesus” film. The next day, village elders donated land for a church, and we had service on the property on Sunday.
During the second week of school, God powerfully called Maggie to rescue and restore families in the Nairobi, Kenya, slums. He gave her confirmations, so she’s heading to Kenya.
Right now Maggie is in Mombasa, Kenya. Our group of 12 has ministered on the streets and have seen God heal and save people. Everyone will return home just before or after Christmas, except for Maggie. She plans to stay in Nairobi for at least three to six months to learn Swahili and some of the culture. There is a church that is connecting her with a place where she can live in the city.
