Tanambao, one of the many neighborhoods of Diego Suarez that sadly, is full of lostness and hopelessness. A few weeks ago, I felt that God was leading me to this place so Christina and I took a walk deep into the area and stopped to talk with several of the residents that live there.
I was encouraged to hear that there may be some people that would like to study the Bible, but I would have to return and search for them. The following week I went back with my teammate, Adam Mitchell, and we were able to share the gospel and hand out 14 tracts to some folks that seemed motivated to learn. We returned on the day and time that they told us, but alas, no one showed up.
Disappointed, yes. Discouraged, no.
Adam and I returned to Tanambao this week, met another man that everyone called Papa and he took us to the house of a lady named Francisca. After sitting, talking (and sweating) in her house for a while, she told us that she would like us to come back to her house on Thursday and that she would gather people that she knows that would like to learn the Bible. I would ask that you would please pray for this neighborhood, for the house of Francisca, and for the people to come and study God's word with us on Thursday. I will post an update about this next week. Thanks for your prayers, God bless.
