It’s been a busy interesting week in Kahemba for the Congo Leadership Coaching Network team (CLCN). Thank goodness they had a rare moment of refreshment on Saturday morning before they began this busy week.
On February 18, Charles wrote:
“Our team had an open time to simply worship without having to cut it short for another meeting or engagement. I have no idea how much time passed as we poured out our hearts to God and experienced an unprecedented infilling ourselves.
“Lots of tears, deep worship, silence, persons simply being overwhelmed with the sweet intimacy and love of the Father. Just what ‘the Doctor ordered’ after experiencing deep fatigue from the past week of teaching in Gungu.”
More information about both the Kahemba and the Gungu seminars will be forthcoming upon their return. The team has made plans to cut their trip short.
On February 22, Charles explained why:
“Another productive seminar day here in Kahemba. Around 11:00 a.m. we got hit with a vicious downpour that brought everything to a halt (so loud on the tin roof that we couldn’t even hear ourselves speak) and soundly put out the charcoal fires that were cooking the fufu, catapillars, and pondu for lunch. Needless to say, lunch got pushed back by a solid 2.5 hours.
“But once again we felt the Wind beneath our wings as we engaged the content. It has been beautiful to watch times of worship deepen as the seminar unfolds and we are all seized by the fresh revelation of our participation in the community of God (aka the Trinity!).
“The youth soccer games were held today instead of their scheduled time on Thursday due to our decision to leave tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. in an attempt to make the village of Mukoso by dark. Between Kahemba and Mukoso are some very nasty roads and bridges, so we deeply appreciate your prayers.
“So much good is happening here on a daily basis–both in the seminar and around that I simply don’t have time to write about. But please know that this great labor of Love in which we are all joined is not in vain. Thanks again for your prayers and encouragement!
“As I write these words, another thunderstorm rumbles in the background and will soon be upon us. With that in mind, may God’s blessings rain down upon you wherever these words may find you.”
• Praise God for the times of refreshment and strength He has given the team
• Praise God for the mighty work of the Spirit among the participants
• Pray for travel safety for all the team members as they navigate through the poor road conditions.
• Be in prayer as soon as you read this.
The team leaves tomorrow, Feb 23rd at 1:00 p.m. considering the time difference of 6 hours it will be approximately 7:00 a.m. EST. Remember that they are all traveling by different conveyances. Those of you who have spent any time in Congo know how bad the roads can be normally. These torrential downpours will only make the situation worse.
Charles sent his thanks for holding the team before the throne of grace and mercy.
We praise God for your prayers, too.
