Today in our prayer time we want to think about two of our missionaries in Africa. James and Marci Langston serve in the nation of Zambia. Our church provides for their support through our Cooperative Program giving.
The Langstons have set up a Rural Bible School that is sort of a weeklong seminary. Over a week, they teach Zambian believers how to share the gospel and how to preach a simple sermon. Students also learn basic Christian beliefs. Most Zambians believe spirits who want to hurt them are everywhere. Christ removes those fears - new believers know true freedom for the first time.
In one class a man named Mr. Shadreck came from a distant village. He had recently become a follower of Christ and wanted to learn more about his new faith. During a session on baptism, Mr. Shadreck realized he needed to be baptized. He was baptized in a river that day.
So many people need to hear the gospel in Zambia that there is no time for a few pastors to study for years. The Langstons want to turn new believers into witnessing believers right now.
Let's pray now for James and Marci and their teaching ministry.
