Sunday Celebration!

On Sunday, Light of the World church in Buundo village celebrated! We celebrated how God began this church through a small Bible study in the village. We celebrated how God provided a place to worship. We celebrated how God provided this land when our church was sent out of the first location. We celebrated God's faithfulness when the first pastor left. We celebrated God's provision of Jonathan, a young man from Buundo village with some seminary training and a passion for the church, to serve as a pastor for us. We celebrated God's provision of metal sheets for a roof after the original tarp broke down. And finally, we celebrated God's provision of the money to pay off the land for the church to be debt free. 

It was so encouraging to be reminded that in the midst of several situations that seemed bad, God provided and cared for his people. Many times I focus on the difficult circumstances and fail to remember the God who is in control of all things. This celebration was a good reminder. God is good, all the time. And all the time, God is good!
