Church leaders preparing to share a portion of Acts
As we started to look deeper into the text of Acts it quickly became evident that these leaders were here to study. Their diligent approach to the Word is always coupled with insightful questions. They want to know more. They want to understand better. They want to be able to go back to their churches and teach in a way that will help others to grow in their knowledge as well.
Another thing that I have noticed among this group is the spirit of fellowship that they share. It is likely that many of them will not see each other outside of times like this. When they are studying in small groups or eating meals they are laughing and sharing together. There is a definite benefit to what takes place here. They are not only being strengthened in knowledge, but also being encouraged as well.
There have been several occasions in the last three days in which a particular teaching may have been understood by one (or more) of the leaders for the very first time. I can’t describe how it feels to see the look of joy upon their face as they understand the word of God more clearly. God is doing great things in Rwanda! Thank you for being a part of it.
