Friday and Saturday I attended a women's meeting for the Manenakela association. I took two of my good friends Amai Mwachamota and Amai Chipboa to help with the teaching. There were 35 women that came from 4 different baptist churches. The theme for the meeting was faith. I taught on Daniel and on Jesus calling the first disciples. I also did a couple of different faith activities which the women really enjoyed. I so enjoy all the singing and dancing but most of all I enjoy seeing them understand the Word of God. During a testimony time, one woman shared that she had never been to a witch doctor until this past year. She was broken over this and started crying as she told her story. She repented of her sin and had giving her husband her charms for him to burn. By the way, her husband is the pastor of the church. Sometimes even Godly people do bad things, but now she is committed to living her life by faith in Jesus alone.

The women bath in the morning and in the evening since we are in the hot season. Those with little ones give them a bath also. This little was finished with her bath and just playing in the water to stay cool.
This is one of the faith activities we did. I had four women blindfolded and they raced along an obstacle course with only one person on their team yelling directions at them. The women had to know the voice of the one telling her what to do and try to block out the other voices. The purpose of this was for the women to realize that we need to put our faith in God alone. There are many voices in our lives telling us what we should do(God, friends, Satan, the world). We need to learn to discern the voice of God so that we will stay on course.
