A large group of excited men, each with a bundle of blankets, had been waiting this morning at the roadside near our centre in Epako.
Harvesters, waiting to be picked up to take part in the harvest. A most-needed income for a lot of hungry families. Hopefully some of the gleanings will also find their way to Light for the Children centre, where meat isn't a daily or even monthly sight - since this harvest is not about about maize, but about kudu.
"Follow Me, and I will make you hunters of men" somehow doesn't have the right ring about it, but that's what our Lord Jesus would probably have said, had he called his disciples from among those men at the roadside in this cattle country and hunters' paradise.
This time of the year, wintertime in Namibia, is actually also outreach time.
So we're expecting our faithful family in Christ from Heidedal in Bloemfontein to come within a week's time and a group representing our support cell from Pretoria to arrive a little sooner. We'll mostly work around Gobabis itself, but also go out into the Region a few times. This means drawing up programs, arranging events, and for all of us - praying and interceding: for their preparations, since we've learned that unexpected things tend to happen in the week before an outreach. We have to pray that their coming will fulfill God's purpose.
When the game harvest is over and the men back home, we also need to know that the Kingdom of God had advanced in people's lives.
