. . . over one sinner who repents . . . . .
None of us on the team has ever been a part of “Bring The Light”. This is a Community Health Evangelism (CHE) outreach that meets both a physical and spiritual needs of people in darkness. I have only heard about “Bring The Light” from others that have actually done it. So today was an incredible experience for me and all of our team.
Basically we go into Mathare Valley – in the Bondeni District – and meet with families to literally bring light into their homes via a skylight and at the same time share the light of Jesus Christ.
The Missions of Hope International (MoHI) social workers set up the home visit in advance, letting the resident know that visitors will come and install a skylight in their one bedroom home (tin or mud walls, a single door, with no windows, often a dirt floor and a tin roof).
As for our experience today, the mother that we went to visit was not there (she had gone out to look for work), but her daughter and son were there. So we were invited in to share the light of Jesus, as a worker on the roof was brining the light into the home.
We used the evangelism cubes and health HIV/AIDS cubes to share with the two residents. After talking with them about Jesus (the cubes help us to tell a short but accurate message of salvation) and after some additional conversations with the social workers, both said they wanted to accept Jesus Christ as their LORD and savior. We were able to pray with them a prayer of confession and salvation.
Our team rejoiced with the angels as we walked back to the Bondeni School.
