Ministry to the north

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Wednesday, February 4, 2015
Andi and I were invited to speak at the AFM Maun thanksgiving conference and what a time we had. After driving for eight and a half hours, we arrived safely in Maun. once we had checked into our lodge, we continued to prepare for the meetings and waited on the Lord as we sought direction for the next few days.

People came in their hundreds to attend the meetings. Some travelled over 100 kilometers to be part of this celebration and we were all inspired by the Spirit of God to press in beyond our limitations and to do so until we see ourselves as free in Him.

We had four wonderful, spirit filled meetings and our hearts were filled with joy as the Lord directed His people. The prophetic word was powerful and brought direction and correction in love wherever needed and as those we got to minister listened and receiv ed the word of instruction, we could see the change in their hearts.

After the Sunday morning service, we got to spend the rest of the day with Pastor Modise, the senior pastor of the congregation and then prepared ourselves to return to Gaborone on Monday morning. The sites we took in both in Maun and on our return journey, amazed us and once again displayed the glory of our God. While sitting and having dinner at the Thamalakane River Lodge, Hippos and Crocodiles lazily pass by. An amazing sunset brought everything to an amazing conclusion.

The road was quiet coming home, except, you really have to be alert, the number of domestic animals crossing the road needs one to be on your toes. I would warn anyone coming to Botswana, to take care when travelling and we found it far safer to do so during the day than at night. The further north one goes, the more wild animals are found crossing and or roaming along the roads, especially north of Nata and Maun, so, be careful when driving these roads. 

All in all, a wonderful time, an amazing week and one we will always be grateful for. This week we continue to prepare for the ministry ahead of us and look forward to the opportunities we are given to share His love to those we are sent to.

Our love for our Father

Mark Labuschagne We are a vessel set apart, cleansed, emptied, consecrated; just standing, waiting every moment for God, in Christ, by the Holy Spirit, to work out in us as much of the holiness and the life of His Son as pleases Him We worship Him only!
