A big discouragement
A note from the Tumbuka Team in sub-Saharan Africa:
“The work of our one-couple team is greatly helped by partnerships with Southern Baptist churches in the United States. Since we live in a rural area, the volunteer teams sent out by these churches multiply our efforts and our kilometers as they go hut to hut, sharing stories from the Bible and sharing the Truth.
“We have recently faced a big discouragement. In one of the new areas of work, there was a murder which is believed to have been a ritualistic killing due to witchcraft. There is a rumor in the area that our volunteer team of Americans paid for this to be done.
“In June, we have another volunteer team coming to work in a different area of our region. Please ask the Lord to go before them and to protect His name. Pray that nothing will hinder the message of hope our team is sharing and that people will not be afraid of us.”
