While having the Upper Boma community remain in Iti for a time was at first a bit discouraging, I can now see God’s hand in this situation. Not only has The Lord provided a place for us, but He has now given us new friends to serve. This was made clear to me through a note of encouragement I received from one of our Boma missionaries, Robert. As I was lamenting the move of our Boma school to Lower Boma, Robert reminded me of God’s sovereign purposes and how we are now having an impact for Christ in Lower Boma. What a blessing!
|Robert’s third grade class in the Boma school made up of mostly students from the Kaywa village.
In the past there have been other Christian organizations in Lower Boma so we felt God wanted us to begin a work ministering to families in Upper Boma. Due to the conflicts over the last three years, most of those organizations have left and now we are able to stand in the gap and serve all the people in the Boma area. As Isaiah 55:9 states,
“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts”.
It is amazing to see God at work in this remote place under the most challenging of circumstances. Thank you for all your prayers and support.
May God bless you.
