What a time

Posted by Mark Labuschagne on Wednesday, November 13, 2013
As we travelled through Botswana, we saw God move in such a powerful way, not only in our own lives, but in the hearts of those we were sent to. What an amazing people. Friendly, proud and sincere is the impression we had of everyone we got to meet. 

Andi and I arrived in Botswana with Francois Conradie who invited us to be part of the hand over of the 17000 bibles that he donated to the Botswana people. It was incredible to be a part of this. The hungry hearts and the expectation of those we got to share with was just so awesome. At the official handing over ceremony,  Francois, the onwer of Discovery drilling, handed the first consignment over to the Honorable Minister of Agriculture, Mr Christaan de Graaf. The event was covered by BTV and soon thereafter the truck was off loaded with 9000 bibles in Gaborone, immediately after which Andi and went on to Selebi Phikwe where we got to help distribute 4000 bibles to schools in the area.

It was here where we got to pray for and lead many young people to Jesus. Andi and I both got to pray for kids of all ages and shared the Good News with the 4000 we got to minister to. 

After this we received a call from the Minister of Agriculture to return to Gaborone where we got to hand over bibles to his ministry staff. Over 500 were in attendence and at this time, I got to share a prophetic word on national television. In an instant God made it possible for His word to go out across the airwaves. The Lord said, "Botswana will become the Jewel of Africa" and we prophecied heavens success over this nation as ee declared the next three yeaes to be a year of breakthrough. We encourage you,  our prayer partners to continue to pray for this great nation. From here we went to meet wuth the Minister of Health,  the Honorable Rev Dr John Seakgosing and joined with him and the superintendent of Princess Marina hospital. Bibles were handed over at this occassion and then ee were taken on a tour of the hospital and got to pray with the sick and the staff of the oncology department.

We are honored to have been a part of this time and believe that this is the season of glory as God opens the doors for us. We are grateful for His indescribable love as we saw the glory of God unfold. We closed our trip off by meeting the deputy minister of education and handed over bibles to children at a school in the city.

Friends,  with God all things are possible.

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!
