“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” 1 Peter 2:9 (ESV)
72. 72 voices lifted up in praise and worship. 72 students learning about the Gospel. 72 students going forth and living out the truth they have learned.
As I listened to the students leading worship on Thursday night, I stood in awe. I soaked in every moment that I could, as these beautiful souls sang at the tops of their lungs to their Creator. I closed my eyes and allowed myself to be immersed as the 72 Ugandan students at The Amazima School worshiped our Lord in a language I have yet to learn. As I did so, all I could think was, “This. This is what Heaven will be like.” Only times, like, a million.
As I get to know these students, I am blown away by how much they have learned and understand about the Gospel in the 8 months that they have been attending The Amazima School. I was floored by some of the deep responses the girls were giving to the questions we were asking in the small group I help lead. They are comprehending beyond just a surface-level understanding of the Good News.
Please pray with me that these students would continue to grow in their knowledge of and love for the Lord and that they would go forth and proclaim the Gospel!
Props to my roommate, Kirstin, for getting this second video!
