Whom will you serve?

10 years ago I was going out weekly to Kakoma Baptist Church to teach the Bible to a group of ladies.  I was storying through the Bible each week as we met.  There was one particular lady who had been trying to get pregnant for a few years.  She went to the witch doctor seeking some drugs or amulets to bring fertility to her womb.  After hearing about Jesus and particularly the story of Sarah and Abraham this woman decided to stop taking the medicine from the witch doctor and to trust in God.  We spent a lot of time praying for this woman to have a child.  Praise God that not long after she made that decision to trust God for a baby she became pregnant.  This woman is standing up in the back row in the middle.  Today we went out to Chongwe and went to Kakoma Baptist Church.  Some of the women have moved away but the two closest to me are from the original group.  Now, Amai Ngoma has 3 children.  She is still involved in church and singing in the choir.  It was such a blessing to see these women today.  As we were leaving one of them said to me, "we still remember all that you taught us."  Praise God!

"Choose for yourselves today whom you will serve...but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."  Joshua 24:15.  Whom will you serve today?
