Like I said in my earlier post, Michele met a young evangelist named John Light on the day she arrived in Sudan in 2006. Late last year, John followed Jesus back to Mundariland to preach the Good News among his people.

Wherever he went, proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, people were saved and he would begin discipling them. Less than one year later, he has seen 4 churches planted! He is still discipling 2 other groups of people that he expects will soon organize themselves into a church. The men and women he has discipled are the men and women who lead the church congregations. John is like a “regional pastor,” going from place to place encouraging and supporting the church leaders, but he still has a fire burning inside him to preach the Gospel in the far-reaches of Mundariland.

We were able to visit two of the church plants on our recent three-day trip. As we proclaimed the Gospel to the people that gathered, we saw people saved and many healed. We rejoiced with a young boy and his mother when the boy was healed- he came to the church that afternoon as a deaf-mute and left the church that night both hearing and vocalizing sounds! PRAISE JESUS! We prayed for little babies and felt the fevers leave their bodies in Jesus’ name! We saw a blind man receive back his eyesight incrementally. At first he couldn’t see, then he could make out shapes, then he could identify how many fingers we were holding up, etc. We praise God for the many works in progress! He surely hears our prayers.

Continue to pray with us for the Mundari and the young Christians ministering in their midst. We are longing to see this tribe living a corporate life of devotion to God! They must turn from their idol worship to the awesome and mighty God that created them, loves them, and longs for relationship with them. When they come to Him in repentance, God will hear their cries, forgive their sins, and heal their land (2 Chronicles 7:14)!
God is at work among this tribe. Oh that not another Mundari man or woman would die without the light of Christ!

    So, about the guy who received his sight incrementally. Do you remember the story in chapter 8 of either Luke or Mark, I forget which, where some people brough a blind man to Jesus? Jesus brought him outside of the city to heal him. At first, the man only saw trees like men walking, and then he was totally healed. So, I was meditating on this a while back. Actually, I was wondering why take him out of the city, but the Holy Spirit ended up using it to tell me that just because you don't have any or all of what you've been asking for, you go right on asking. Either Jesus or that man, after he could see men like trees walking, could have said, "Oh, great. I/he can see now. That takes care of that." But neither of them did. They stuck around, knowing that God had more: fully restored sight, not partially restored sight; and the man was healed completely–but only because they stuck around. The moral of the story: If you've been asking for something, and you know it's God's will, and you're not getting the answer you know He has, keep asking. It's not done until God has fulfilled His word, which can be counted on. After all, doesn't it uphold everything? And is God not incapable of lying?Yep. It's great.
