On the same day, another of our teams had gone out to pray and walk around the hills. Before they set out, they received several words of knowledge, one of which was a picture of a woman wearing blue. After a long afternoon of hiking, they had met many of the people and seen the places that God had showed them He would guide them to, but they still had not met the woman in blue.
But then, just as they were wondering whether to return home, something happened. A member of the team recounts the story of how they met an "old lady who was dramatically waving her hands indicating that she couldn’t see clearly, couldn’t swallow food and she wanted to die. We hugged her and spoke words of comfort to her in English and other languages; she spoke only her language but could catch some of the words where the language has similarities.
After some time she was gesturing that she was going home and we couldn’t work out if she wanted us to go with her or not so we just waved as she set of…...but then as she walked away, I saw with great amazement that she was wearing a blue cloth wraparound……this was the lady Father had wanted us to meet!….. My friend had not misunderstood when she felt it was a lady wearing blue!
So we ran after her and joined her as she led us to her home. One minute she was utterly delighted, like a young child, the next, she was utterly broken, as she showed us where she slept, on a bed outside covered only by a piece of tin metal. Again we spoke words of Father’s love and comfort to her, she seemed to find some joy and peace, and we saw her face change. We learnt in later meetings that she has four sons who are all feuding about who should take care of her. Consequently, none of them are and she is sleeping on her own outside. She previously used to spit and shout ugly words at our friend because he believes in Our Father and now this has turned around. She is a special, poor and desperate lady who shared her radishes with us because we gave her the love and attention that she was craving."
Throughout the time we spent there, the Father faithfully showed himself to many more people -- healing sickness and pain, setting them free from fear, and restoring strained and broken relationships.
We also managed to build a toilet at each of the new houses, thanks in large part to the help and expertise of local builders. Although we were often tired at the end of the day -- from shifting soil, lifting big bags of sand, or just from walking the steep hills -- we finished each day with a sense of satisfaction, joy and excitement to be a part of the great things God is doing in this village and this country.
