Overland Missions field report: June

COVID-19 put the world into unknown territory. As something new happened in the world, something new was happening in Mozambique. Four students traveled to Mozambique, unaware that a historic world lockdown would soon occur. Planes, busses, and 4x4s carried them over sea and dusty, sandy roads to reach our base in Inhambane, Mozambique. These students arrived just weeks before worldwide lockdowns forced border closures and flight cancelations. They were there to experience a move of God and connect with Him in a new way as participants in the first ever Advanced Mission Training outside of Zambia. Little did they know how different it would be! Read what happened next!

producing hope

“Moreover [let us also be full of joy now!] let us exult and triumph in our troubles and rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that pressure and affliction and hardship produce patient and unswerving endurance.
And endurance (fortitude) develops maturity of character (approved faith and tried integrity). And character [of this sort] produces [the habit of] joyful and confident hope of eternal salvation.
Such hope never disappoints or deludes or shames us, for God's love has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit Who has been given to us.” — Romans 5: 3-5

Annie

This is Annie. She's practically part of the furniture here on Rapid 14, the logistical base for Overland Missions in Zambia. Not only is she an absolutely PHENOMENAL cook, and super patient in teaching the AMT students how the kitchen is run, she is a powerhouse of faith, and a great source of wisdom.

the Lord has heard

Isn't it true that we sometimes go through seasons where things seem to be dreary and stale, where nothing seems to move forward and where breakthrough seems like a desert mirage? Distant and unattainable.

There are some specific things that I've been praying about for some time, and the Lord's response is simply this: SHAMMAH. THE LORD IS HERE. HE HEARS.

A good friend recently shared this nugget of wisdom with me:"If Sarah had a son at 30, it would've been normal. If she had a son at 50, people would've thought it's great and look how well she takes care of herself! But she had a son at 99, and the only One to receive glory from that is God."

There are SO MANY examples from Scripture where people sought the Lord, crying out to Him.

There are AS MANY examples from Scripture where God answers prayer.
