Evangelism in the Slums

Monday, March 8 the team went into Nateete slum to share the Gospel. We had to walk in because there are no roads and it had been raining. Lots of standing water but not flooded at the time. This was Lynn and my first time to go out since we have been in language study. It was an amazing experience. Our team divided up into about 6 groups, each with an interpreter. Every home invited us in to share and they were so open to hear the Word. Some were Catholics, some Muslim, but everyone was ready to hear.

There is a lot of sickness in this area because of the tendency to flood. We have had a lot of rain in the last couple of months and this is suppose to be the dry season. Malaria is common, but there are other water-related diseases such as cholera.

This was one of the young ladies that became a believer that day.
