The ELS outreach at the World Cup was a great success! We were a team of 19 people in all. After a long cold trip on the train, we arrived in Pretoria. We got to minister in Rhulani’s church in a black township near Pretoria, where we danced and one of the students spoke and shared his testimony. We spent one afternoon and evening doing evangelism together with the youth of her church in Church square in Pretoria where we worshiped and preached. A handful of people made a decision to accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior! We spent two of the mornings in another black township at a school where we organized a program for the youth together with another team from Brazil. We did dramas and dances and several of our students shared testimonies and provided translation to the teams from Brazil who couldn’t speak English. One night, we went into Johannesburg and distributed Bibles and tracts outside the World Cup match. We also visited another area school where they were showing the South African match for people from the community to watch. The building was full of loud Bafana Bafana supporters and their vuvuzelas! It was crazy! During half-time we performed some dances Korean and Brazilian dances and did a drama about Jesus. It was an exciting trip and a really fruitful time for all of us. Praise the Lord!

This morning we had our first base intercession of the year and we looked at the principles for an effective intercession.
“Seeking God comes from knowing His presence. This is what I try to live by every day of my life. Practicing the presence of Jesus, so that whether you pray or whether you work or witness, or whatever you do, you practice the presence of Jesus.”
